Public Engagement: Policy Makers and Decision Takers
AIMS Tanzania uses the results of research to inform policy making and decision taking.
An example is the master plan for the Mtwara Educational Improvement Initiative.
Another is an analysis of data on the frequency of albinism from the Tanzanian Census of 2012. This began as Master’s students’ projects and has revealed some unexpected results that are being presented in a variety of public fora, including a UN sponsored International Albinism Forum in Dar Es Salaam in June 2016.
“We are pleased to bring the AIMS model to Tanzania. We bring together top global scholars in math and science to teach and research with Africa’s brightest students”. Our graduates then use these skills to tackle African development issues ranging from disease prevention to environmental degradation, education and poverty.
AIMS graduates have a broad-based training and are talented problem solvers and innovators, which is just what this continent needs.”
