Tajikistan Is Changing the Way Children Learn

Ten years ago, the government of Tajikistan started an ambitious education reform effort with the support from the Global Partnership for Education, World Bank, UNICEF and USAID. The new competency-based curriculum aims to improve learning environments, teacher quality and provide students with cognitive and life skills.

As of 2017, the following results have been achieved with support of a US$16.2 million grant from the Global Partnership for Education:

  • 5,400 primary teachers have been trained
  • 2 million new learning materials have been distributed to grades 1-4
  • 160,000 primary students are using the new curriculum

By 2020, all grades and schools in Tajikistan aim to complete the transition from knowledge-based to competency-based education.
