Fit For School Search


Lessons on Scaling-up the Fit for School Approach in the Sisattanak District of Vientiane Capital, Lao PDR

The Sisattanak District in the Vientiane Capital of Lao PDR was able to scale up the Fit for School program in all its primary schools within three years. This was made possible under the leadership of the District Education Bureau, in partnership with the District Health Department and endorsement from the Department of Pre-school and Primary Education (DPPE) of the Ministry of Education and Sports (MoES) and Provincial Education Service of Vientiane Capital.

A short video was produced to show success factors that contributed to the district-wide scale-up of the Fit for School program. It hopes to encourage other districts in Lao PDR to start implementing the program as well, by using available resources and utilizing existing government structures. The video is a joint project of the Ministry of Education and Sports (MoES) of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization Regional Center for Educational Innovation and Technology (SEAMEO INNOTECH) and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.
