Assessment of Life Skills and Values in East Africa (ALiVE)

The Assessment of life skills and values in East Africa (ALiVE) is an initiative of the Regional Education Learning Initiative (RELI), through the Values and Life Skills Thematic Cluster. In this 3-year initiative, 20 civil society organizations in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda are collaborating to:

1) Develop open-sourced contextualized assessment tools;

2) Generate large-scale evidence through a household-based assessment of adolescents (13-17 years);

3) Inform policy decisions and public awareness to focus on supporting the development of values and life skills; and

4) Develop local assessment capacities and amplify East Africa’s voice on the regional and global platforms. The initiative has prioritized the measurement of four competencies across the three countries: Self-awareness, Problem-solving, Collaboration and Respect.
