In 2023 a MoU was signed by PSEUM and ISAMA, which is a result of many years of advocacy. PSEUM has also lobbyed the government to get more equal conditions for in-service training and other conditions as the public teachers. In 2023 a process of producing a manual for study-circles has started and a ToT will be implemented in April 2024. There are both women and youth committees in the three regions.
