Ndi Hano!, Rwanda - Development of a Pilot Attendance Monitoring System

As part of this DFID-funded, Education for Change-led project, CGA supported the Rwanda Education Board (REB) to develop and implement the country’s first SMS-based attendance monitoring system, Ndi Hano! (meaning ‘I am here’ in Kinyarwandan). Its aim was to enable the REB, education officials, head teachers, teachers, parents and other education stakeholders to enhance their collective accountability for attendance in the classroom and ultimately to lead to more regular attendance at school by both teachers and learners.
