Results-Based Financing for Producing Supplemental Reading Materials in Bangladesh : Descriptive Note (Inglês)

This descriptive note outlines conclusions and policy implications of the Onuprerona Book Challenge in Bangladesh. It will provide analysis and recommendations for the design and costing of similar challenges in other contexts. Onuprerona is an 18-month project that aims to open a pathway for aspiring authors of underserved languages to create quality supplementary reading materials for early grade learners in the Khagrachari division of Bangladesh. The project is implemented by IREX with support from its in-country partners, Zabarang and Save the Children in Bangladesh. The project was executed through three streams of activity: first, IREX and partners conducted scoping work and an attitudinal study to understand the publishing landscape and stakeholder attitudes toward Mother Tongue-Based Multi-Lingual Education in the target division of Khagrachari. IREX and partners also conducted various awareness raising activities in over 100 communities in the Khagrachari division, ensuring parents, teachers, and students are aware of the Government of Bangladesh’s plans to roll out a new MTB-MLE policy. Second, IREX designed and conducted a multi-round book creation competition, attracting aspiring authors to create multiple titles in four different languages. Competitors attended an orientation to understand contest rules, national content and quality standards for supplementary reading materials, and took part in a required training in how to use Bloom, the self-publishing software. IREX and its partners then distributed print copies of the books to 100 communities and submitted digital copies to a2i, to be published through their Teachers’ Portal.
