    Preface The Japanese Government extends official development assistance (ODA) to developing countries to support self-help efforts that will lead to economic progress and a better life for the nations of those countries. Since its foundation in 1974, the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has implemented Japans technical cooperation under the ODA programme. Currently, JICA conducts such activities as training (both in Japan and third countries), dispatch of experts, provision of equipment, project-type technical cooperation, development study, dispatch of cooperation volunteers (JOCV), survey and administration of capital grant aid programmes. The training programme is one of JICAs fundamental technical cooperation activities for developing countries. The objectives of the JICA training programme are:

    (1) To contribute to the development of human resources who will promote the advancement of developing countries, and

    (2) To contribute to the promotion of mutual understanding and friendship among those who are concerned in the training programme.

    This Third Country Training Programme is part of South South Cooperation through JICA based on a collaborative effort in cost-sharing with participating countries including the Republic of Kenya, which hosts the TCTP in CEMASTEA to strengthen networking in mathematics and science education in Africa. The programme in ASEI & PDSI Approach in Mathematics and Science for Africa aims at providing opportunities for educators in secondary/primary school teachers training (both pre- and in-service) in mathematics and science education to explore alternative and promising classroom practices. Introduction to effective and efficient teaching/learning methodology based on ASEI/PDSI approach through a curriculum comprised of lectures, demonstration lesson/peer teaching, discussion and field/study trips pertaining to the mathematics and science education at secondary/primary level is the focus of the training.

    Foreword to General Information (GI) on Third Country Training Programme

    Mr. Stephen M. Njoroge Director, CEMASTEA

    The Third Country Training Programme (TCTP) is one of the regional activities of JICA. SMASE-WECSA association was established in 2002 by African countries that gathered in Nairobi, Kenya, to attend the SMASSE 2nd Regional conference on mathematics and science education. The association was registered in Nairobi under the societys act in 2003. In June 2003, SMASSE-WECSA activities were incorporated in the Phase II agreement of SMASSE-Kenya project signed between the Ministry of Education, Kenya, and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). In this agreement, SMASSE-Kenya, which was nominated by member countries as the associations administrative centre and secretariat, undertook to offer training opportunities to other member countries through funding from JICA. In December, 2013, SMASE Kenya Project activities were wound up but JICA felt that CEMASTEA could continue offering the TCTP on the changed modalities that were announced during the 13th SMASE WECSA Regional Conference in Nairobi in October 2013. The training is to be conducted at the Centre for Mathematics, Science and Technology Education in Africa (CEMASTEA). This will be a three (3) weeks programme for Advanced secondary, three (3) weeks programme for Basic Primary and three (3) weeks programme for Advanced Primary. The aim is to increase number of countries national trainers on ASEI-PDSI in the selected countries and consequently participation by students in mathematics and science classrooms through carefully selected classroom activities that bridge practical work to concepts being learnt. The training combines discussions, expositions, practical work and classroom teaching. Participants must therefore be practicing teachers or teacher trainers of these subjects. It is my hope that this G.I. will help Ministry of Education Officials in the selected countries to understand the nature of training and identify suitable participants so that the children of these countries benefit when participants return home.
