In 2013, a six-year programme (2013-2018) of Vlir-UOS funded inter-university cooperation between Flemish universities and Mzumbe University of Tanzania was launched. One of the four projects of the Gre@t programme focuses on strengthening of academic capacities, activities and outputs in the area of local governance. This brief highlights selected findings from a study on local education governance with a focus on two villages around Mzumbe University (Changarawe and Vikenge). Primary data for this study was collected in mid-2014 through preliminary village studies, a household survey and semi-structured interviews with actors at village, ward and district level who are directly and indirectly involved in the education sector service delivery and governance.
