Country Task Force

Together for Early Childhood Evidence Logo

Country task force teams representing Ethiopia, Liberia, Rwanda and South Africa joined the consortium in 2019, followed by Malawi in 2022. Each team works together to exchange in dialogue about building data-driven ECE systems in their countries. Country task force teams comprise approximately 5-8 members, including governments, USAID, civil society organizations, university researchers, statistical agencies, or any other relevant organizations involved in ECE data collection and use in their countries.

Between 2023-2025, the country task force teams are continuing to work together to bridge gaps between policy, practice, and research in their early childhood education systems. Each team is leading a country research activity to explore how pre-primary systems can better use data to improve young children’s early learning experiences.
