Final evaluation
Background:
Burundi has since the mid 2000s experienced peace after having been engaged in a civil war for more
than a decade. The civil war has been linked to ethnic violence, which again caused an estimated 300
000 civilian casualties since 1993. More than 500 000 people were displaced during the conflict, Since
2005 though, almost all those displaced have returned, mainly from Tanzania, but also from
neighboring Rwanda, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). In 2005 the people of
Burundi exercised their democratic right to vote in a peaceful election and followed up by a new round
of elections in 2010. Despite peace and relative stability, Burundi remains one of the poorest countries
in the world and finds itself in a fragile regional context.
NRC has been present in Burundi since 1997, providing protection and humanitarian assistance to
refugees, internally displaced persons and returnees. An important part of NRC’s work has been the
Teacher’s Emergency Package (TEP) Programme. The TEP programme was initially developed by
UNESCO-PEER. In Burundi, NRC’s TEP programme provides a one-year catch-up programme
(comprising the two first years of primary school) for 9-14 year old children who have not had the
possibility to attend school due to displacement. At the end of the TEP year, the authorities organize
an examination where approximately 95 % of the children are either integrated into the third or the
second year of the formal school system.
TEP has been implemented by NRC in Burundi since 1999. During 12 years of TEP implementation in
Burundi, more than 94,000 children were registered in NRC’s TEP schools and more than 75,000
were reintegrated in public primary schools.
General objective of the TEP project is;
to contribute to increased literacy and access to basic education for returnee children and youth in
Burundi (with special focus on girls’ enrolment), by promoting and protecting children’s right to
education and their reintegration into the formal school system.
Objectives of the TEP project can be summarised as follows;
To provide a catch-up programme (of teaching and learning primary literacy, mathematics and
selected relevant subjects) for displaced, returned or other out-of-school children aged 9 to 14,
who did not have access to the basic education due to war, displacement or other reasons.
The project aims to support children to catch up on their learning and enter the formal school
system.
Successful completion of the TEP year qualifies for entry into the public school system.
To build the capacity and competence of teachers and local education authority staff
A. Purpose of the evaluation and intended use
The main purpose of the evaluation is to obtain an independent assessment of the TEP programme in
Burundi, to get an understanding of its relevance, how effectively NRC has implemented the
programme and to assess the impact on the beneficiaries and the community at large.
