With support from Finn Church Aid, UMYDF in partnership with Uganda Muslim Supreme Council(UMSC) reviewed and reproduced copies of the Madrasa Education Curriculum and launched it. As a result of this, the curriculum was adopted by the Islamic call University and its being rolled out to over 80 madrasa teachers through the National Madrasa Tutors Enhancement Program. This also resulted into the establishment of the first Islamic Education Primary Examination Board (IEPB) that is mandated to assess and standardize National Islamic education exams for students who have passed through the preexisting curriculum. The development of this curriculum provided new standards that madrasa teachers and Islamic education institutions should operate within after the police reports indicating that some madrasas were grooming terrorists. The curriculum has also incorporated peace building for the young people.
