Detailed description of project Back

In January 2012, the Global Partnership for Education Secretariat informed the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania of an indicative allocation of US$100 million for a Program Implementation Grant to support the country’s efforts to provide quality basic education for all. The allocation is to be divided between the Tanzania mainland and Zanzibar.

In advance of the preparation of the funding application, an appraisal of the education plan is conducted by the Development Partners. The finalized plans and appraisal reports are submitted to the GPE Secretariat with an endorsement letter signed by the Development Partners and will in Tanzania’s full GPE membership. At the same time an overall timetable has been developed for development of Tanzania’s applications for funding from the GPE. The Embassy of Sweden is committed to support these parallel processes and the objective of this consultancy is twofold:

  • Appraisal of Tanzania Mainland Education Sector Plans;
  • Development of the Program Implementation Grant application package.
