Creative Associates is implementing Vamos Ler!, a five-year, USAID-funded early grade reading project with the aim to improve early grade reading outcomes in Nampula and Zambézia. The project focuses on three main areas of intervention to improve students’ reading fluency and comprehension in their mother tongue: 1) improve the quality of reading instruction at the early primary level, 2) improve policy frameworks and delivery systems for early grade reading, and 3) increase parental and community engagement in and support for education and early grade reading. The project has a main office in Maputo with field offices in Nampula and Zambézia.
The Senior Community Mobilization Coordinator will be responsible for implementing field activities to increase community engagement in bilingual education and enhance support for local language early grade reading.

S/he will work closely with school directors and teachers to help organizing reading clubs in Vamos Ler! schools, giving children more opportunities to practice and improve their reading in the critical early grade years. Other priority activities for this position will include organizing community events such as Reading Day celebrations and competitions at the school level, and community campaigns to encourage parents to bring their children to school on time and consistently and to create space and time for children to practice reading at home.
