There is growing excitement about Jolly Phonics in Zambia

Near the end of 2017, the Permanent Secretary for Education commissioned pilots into Jolly Phonics within 6 schools in Lusaka and Ndola districts. The impact of these pilots on improving pupils' literacy levels was notably appreciated by teachers and education officials from the Ministry of Education. Jolly Phonics was observed as an effective way of helping learners to achieve independence of reading and writing at a very early stage and the pilots were expanded.
