HakiElimu works across all challenges in the education sector, but under the current 2017 – 2021 Strategic Plan the key campaign themes or priorities are:
  • Inclusion and disability
  • Violence against children in schools
  • Girl’s retention, transition and access to education

What We Do

We advocate for Government to develop and implement evidence-based policies that promote accessibility, equity and inclusive quality education in a friendly and protective environment

HakiElimu generates evidence of the learning and teaching environment in Tanzania through research, policy and budget analysis, and piloting innovations. We use this evidence to advocate for improved policy and education financing.

Our evidence-based advocacy targets both citizens and policy makers with messages and calls to action. We utilise a number of platforms including publications, television, national and local radio, and social media, as well as direct engagement through conferences, policy forums and strategic meetings to stimulate national debate and seek commitments from the country’s leaders.
