Let Us Learn (LUL) uses innovation in education delivery to improve learning for vulnerable children in five countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Liberia, Madagascar and Nepal. LUL programmes support children across the education lifecycle: from early childhood education; to primary and secondary school, and finally through to vocational training. Programmes are targeted to the most marginalized, such as children who are out of school or at high risk of dropping out. Mixed methods research builds evidence on how these programmes work and are effective in improving the outcomes of vulnerable children.
UNICEF Innocenti and the education section at UNICEF headquarters work in partnership with country offices to improve measuring and evaluation systems and embed research and evidence into programming decisions for LUL programmes. As education system closures due to COVID-19 have disproportionately affected the most vulnerable, evidence on the most impactful solutions to enable marginalized children to continue learning is more urgent than ever.
