Village TEACH Wins Innovation Prize

Elevate is honored to win the Results Innovation Lab’s COVID-19 Innovation Prize for Uganda for our Village TEACH Response Program in Mukono District.

The COVID-19 Innovation Prize recognizes work that has already been completed by local Ugandan innovators and that has had positive effects on and benefitted boys, girls, women, men and youth in terms of protection, adapted livelihoods and resilience from the effects of the pandemic.

In mid-summer, recognizing that schools were likely to remain closed for an extended period of time, Elevate designed and implemented an intervention to equip parents with the tools to prevent learning loss and reduce long-term dropout.
