arp ake programme objectives
ARP/AKE Programme objectives

The ARP overall objectives are to:

  • Provide GeSCI with mechanism and means to impact more countries in Sub Saharan Africa (SSA) and to go more in-depth on particular ICT4E issues in a sub-region or in specific country
  • Build a strategic Knowledge Sharing community to provide platform for regional knowledge sharing and building
  • Support SSA countries through regional ICT4E policy work focusing on improving access and quality provision of education
  • Provide strategic advice and technical assistance to regional organisations (e.g. ADEA) on ICT4E matters
  • Build appropriate partnerships and form collaborations to facilitate the work of its different components.
arp ake components
ARP/AKE Components
  • The ARP is made up of the following components:
  • Country programmes
  • Knowledge sharing (African Knowledge Exchange)
  • Partnerships (e.g. ADEA collaboration)
  • Expansion and country selection
  • Post engagement support (e.g. Namibia, Ghana)
  • Targeted work (with a country or series of countries) on a specific piece of thematic work
  • Annual/biennial State of ICT4E in SSA publication
outcome challenge
Outcome Challenge

The Programme would like to develop a solid knowledge base for ICT4E for SSA which would lead to better informed policies and plans and more coordinated and integrated efforts to improve the quality of education and access to education. Planning in MoEs is often done in silos and isolation, and a solid knowledge base with the information packaged in accessible and usable formats and disseminated across government units will facilitate interaction and the creation of synergies between units. Units will have an updated knowledge base to draw upon and will become more open for cross-fertilisation of ideas. Both decision makers and technocrats will use the knowledge base as a reference point for their work.
