While no single project looks the same, we always begin by listening to our clients about the specific challenges or opportunities they are encountering. We focus first on listening to and learning from stakeholders, including staff, community members, and educators wherever possible, and gathering data and diverse perspectives to understand the local context and inform our work.

Throughout our efforts, we work closely with staff to set up systems, tools, and processes that enable our clients to continue the work well beyond Kitamba’s engagement.

We know that many school systems have undergone countless “reform” efforts. Our goal is to bring durable, lasting improvements that help our clients support student success over the long haul. We are focused on the shared goal of creating higher quality education and learning opportunities for all children. What matters most to us is that our clients share this vision and are working hard every day to bring that vision to life.
