To improve student learning in six states in Northern Nigeria over 6 years. This will be achieved through creating a cohort of 66,000 more effective teachers of Mathematics, Science and Technology and English. For every year that these 66,000 teachers continue in service, they will improve the learning outcomes of up to 2,000,000 students in primary and junior secondary schools. In the Colleges of Education, a total of 816 lecturers, working in Primary Education and Junior Secondary School Departments, will be trained.

ZELS will reduce the impact of zoonotic diseases on poor people in developing countries and build the capacity of the research community to respond to emerging threats globally. This will be achieved through improved and/or new rapid fields tests, drugs, vaccines, and control interventions (i.e. reporting, surveillance, disease control), including identification of policies (e.g. animal health, public health, and environment) and institutional changes with the potential to decrease the risk of zoonoses both developing in animals and being transmitted to humans.
