The development of decoding skills is taught mostly during school hours and is less stressed at these times. In the NBDCK project, reading takes place in English, Swahili, and the mother tongue, Ekugusii. Age level materials are provided in all the three languages. NBDCK’s main implementing partner is the public schools. This is a potentially low cost program, as mentors are not remunerated. While the innovation is effective, the NBDCK is not particularly high in best practices.
