This MTB MLE Resource Kit is for people who recognise that "inclusive and quality education” is possible only when children are able to understand the language used in school.  The Kit was developed for three specific stakeholder groups: policy makers, programme implementers and community members. The five booklets in the Kit provide a “big picture” of successful MTB MLE programmes and suggestions for the roles each group can take as they plan, implement and maintain their programmes.
