The EGRIC program aims to develop the capacity of teachers to teach reading in primary grade using high quality, multi-genre, culturally relevant and age-appropriate instructional materials and resources in English and Kiswahili. EGRIC hopes to complement and fill an existing gap in teacher education through equipping teachers with reading knowledge and skills.

The EGRIC program targets pre service teachers undertaking  Bachelor of Education courses  in Early Childhood Education at the University of Nairobi.

This group of teachers will work with children in the early grades (pre school to third grade).


The EGRIC program is being administered at the Kenya Science Campus by the Department of Educational Communication and Technology, College of Education and External Studies, University of Nairobi.
