ADB Loan 1442-INO: Basic Education Project


The primary objectives of the project were to strengthen the institutional framework and to upgrade the educational standards of public and private Madrasah Ibtidaiyah (MIs) and Madrasah Tsanawiyah (MTs) schools to provide equitable access for basic education to all children especially for the poor girls. The overall objectives of the mission were to conduct an in-depth review and analysis of implementation of the project as defined in the RRP and Loan Agreement with ADB for inclusion in the Project Completion Report (PCR); To use Borrower’s PCR as the Mission’s PCR. The PCR was intended to provide concise description and assessment of the Project from identification to completion; evaluated the adequacy of preparation, design, appraisal, implementation arrangement, performance of the borrower, EA and ADB including problems encountered as to whether they were foreseen as potential risks and the adequacy of the solution adopted during implementation; provided a preliminary evaluation of initial operation, achievement and sustainability of benefits; provided a preliminary evaluation of the extent of achievement of the immediate objectives (purpose) of the project’s impact in contributing to achievement of the long range objective (goal); suggested follow-up actions required during project operation and make recommendations based on evaluation and lessons learned for future project implementation and operations, as well as regarding improvements in related ADB procedures.


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.
