Revitalization of Iraqi Schools and Stabilization of Education (RISE) Project
DevTech was a subcontractor to Creative Associates on this USAID-funded education project that promoted rapid school enrollment and sustained retention in the Iraqi school system – with a focus on children who had either dropped out of school or were never enrolled. The project included rapid distribution of school materials, equipment, and supplies; education reform and accelerated learning; and training of teachers and school administrators.
DevTech was responsible for the following activities under RISE:
- Developing the performance monitoring plan for the project;
- Conducting mid-term and project-end data collection and analysis to monitor and report on the results and impacts of the project’s six discrete educational components; and
- Evaluating the community grants for the school rehabilitation component, which involved interviewing stakeholders at the local level where RISE disbursed grants.
