PEAS strives to achieve impact across three key areas of our work: expanding access to education, providing quality education, and guaranteeing sustainability of approach.

We regularly assess performance against our goals in these areas through internal monitoring and evaluation (M&E) activities carried out at the school level, as well as commissioning external evaluations of our programming.

Our results

Working within the national curricula of the countries where we operate, PEAS schools aim to provide a quality education that supports every student – regardless of their background or circumstance – to achieve their full potential.

Latest reports

Apart from our internal Monitoring and Evaluation activities, PEAS periodically commissions independent evaluations to understand the performance of our programmes in achieving their goals.

Monitoring and Evaluation Approach

We undertake a range of regular data collection, analysis, and reporting activities in country to provide evidence to our teachers, school leaders, staff, and partners on what is working and what is not – including looking regularly at areas including the demographic backgrounds of our students, principal barriers to participation in education, and student and teacher perceptions of school quality.

Our students

Right now, one in four children in Uganda, and one in three in Zambia, attend secondary school. Around 22 million children of secondary school age in Sub-Saharan Africa are not in classrooms and it is, in a large part, due to the proximity and cost of state schools.
