USAID accomplishments under the strategy take many forms, including the scale of contributions to education service delivery in their partner countries, the leverage and influence that USAID has developed through strategic and technical engagement, and the critical partnerships and collaborations that have advanced the goals of the strategy. Over the strategy period, USAID has supported 151 basic education programs in 46 countries, directly benefiting more than 41.6 million children and youth (20.2m females, 21.4m males). The annual reach of basic education programs aligned with the goals of the Education Strategy grew from 7.6 million children and youth (3.8m female, 3.8m male) in 29 countries in 2011, to 25.7 million children and youth (12.4m female, 13.3m male) in 45 countries in 2015. We have supported activities central to achieving the education goals of their partner countries, including improved pedagogy through training for an average of 450,000 teachers annually, increased parental and community engagement through support for an average of 26,000 parent teacher associations or community-based school governance structures annually, and the provision of 146 million essential teaching and learning materials over the course of the strategy.
