MSL succeeded in improving the educational quality and enrolment capacity of MIs and MTs in project areas. The physical facilities of a large number of madrasahs were improved and expanded under the Project’s civil works program and ASFI programs (shared by local communities with donations in kind and cash). Twenty-four MIs and 15 MTs were upgraded as model madrasahs to lead other madrasahs in quality improvement efforts and serve as resource centers. The facilities of model MTs were supplemented by the establishment of CLRCs, each with in-service training and boarding facilities for about 100 trainees. Model madrasahs were equipped with laboratories (science and language), libraries, rooms for computers, and auditoriums. The physical inputs were matched with the training of about 60,000 staff, including administration and finance officers; laboratory technicians; and MORA’s central, provincial, and district officials. Teachers, principals, supervisors, and librarians were also trained. In addition, about 385 MORA policy makers, madrasah education officers, and master teachers received overseas training. The capabilities of institutions supporting madrasahs were strengthened through the training of regional MORA officers; yayasan managers; and parent, community, and teacher association representatives. Manuals and guidelines and evaluation instruments were developed and disseminated to improve the management, financing, supervision, and accreditation systems of madrasahs.
