One of the main outcomes of the intervention is the development of a teaching manual on participatory teaching methods based on the experiences of and ideas from participating teachers and students shared during reflections and lessons learned group meetings across the participating schools. Another important outcome is the organising and strengthening of local networks, that are supportive of participatory teaching methods as a way of achieving quality education in the region.
