|Samenvatting||In the past, the children of pastoralists in Karamoja, Uganda, never went to school because their forefathers had cursed education. It was not an outright refusal of education, but rather the competing need for subsistence labour. The Alternative Basic Education for Karamoja (ABEK) programme and the Early Childhood Development and Education (ECDE) programmes, introduced among the Karamojong communities, has encouraged them to enroll their children in schools. The programmes help smooth the transition from non-formal to formal schooling, and monitor the children’s performance, contributing to avoiding high dropout rates in the formal school system.|
