a. Mothers’ Gathering
‘Mother’s Gathering’ encourages mothers to play an active role in their children’s education. The objective of Mothers ‘Gathering is to make mothers aware of the entitlements of their school-going children and be capable enough to raise their voice and place their demand to improve the quality of education and facilities that are necessary to create an environment that is conducive for learning. It is a social accountability tool which, in a participatory process, promotes disclosure and transparency in schools, reduces unauthorized payments for service provided by the school, and holds the school authorities accountable. It is also a useful process of woman participation and empowerment in the improvement of primary education.
