Improving learning outcomes in early literacy Improving literacy levels requires early intervention and early grade reading in particular is a powerful tool to achieve later educational success. "These pupils are still new - about two month's old in primary school. In a class of 55, more than half have mastered spellings, sounds, reading and writing in such a short period. Tusome is good. The pictures incorporated in the books are a great idea to retain pupil attention and words/pictures recognition," said Mwanamisi Ngare, a standard 1 class teacher at Mvindeni Primary School in Kwale County.
The Sustainable Water Partnership (SWP) is USAID’s flagship water program along the Mara River, Kenya. SWP educates communities on water risk and conservation, while the communities provide invaluable local perspective. It’s not just the atmosphere of transboundary cooperation that sets SWP’s work apart. It’s also the sense of ownership Mumbo and his team are cultivating in the people of the Mara, from community members to government officials to private sector representatives.

USAID's Amazon Vision 2020 Report looks at the Agency's efforts to address illegal deforestation, among other topics. This includes USAID’s collaboration with Wake Forest University’s Center for Amazonian Scientific Innovation (CINCIA) to research how the effects of illegal deforestation in Madre de Dios, Peru can be mitigated and reversed. CINCIA scientists are researching reforestation techniques to reclaim the Amazon as quickly as possible, as well as monitoring mercury pollution and deforestation using drones. If CINCIA’s reforestation pilot with Peru’s National Protected Areas Services in Tambopata National Reserve is successful, the government of Peru could use similar techniques to reforest other areas of the Amazon, such as the nearly 10,000 hectares in southeastern Peru that have been destroyed by illegal mining since 1985. CINCIA uses drones like the one pictured here to improve the analysis of deforested mining areas.
