Tajikistan Read with Me

Tajikistan Read with Me aims to improve reading outcomes for students in grades one through four in targeted schools in Tajikistan. To achieve this, Chemonics will provide educators with reading-specific in-service training, supplementary materials, and integration of assessments to monitor reading progress.  Additionally, Chemonics will increase the availability of age-appropriate reading materials in mother-tongue languages, specifically Tajik and Russian, in an effort to develop students’ core reading skills. Read with Me will increase government support for reading through capacity building in reading instruction and mentoring, as well as, increasing dialogue on the environment for reading.  Innovations and partnerships will play a key role in Read with Me’s methodology to support literacy outcomes.
