A review of the Alternative Basic Education program in Karamoja

In partnership with REDD BARNA, the Government of Uganda through the Ministry of Local Government, as well as the District Local Governments in Kotido and Moroto in 1998, and Nakapiripirit in 2004 signed a Memorandum of Understanding – enabling REDD BARNA to implement ABEK as one of its overarching educational initiatives designed to benefit children in the Karamoja region who were not able to access formal primary education due to the semi-nomadic lifestyle of their parents and communities at large. Prior to this was a ritual to unearth the pen that had been cursed and buried because it was associated with oppression. This ritual was a breakthrough regarding development of education in the Region. SCiU commissioned this study to review progress made and to identify issues of concern and lessons learnt for the future of ABEK and basic education of children living in special circumstances such as those in the Karamoja region. The review, therefore was to inform the project implementation level and national level advocacy and work on education in the region.
