This project works with 64 schools to improve the education of 7,380 marginalised girls, helping them to transition from primary to secondary school, and leave school ready to continue their education or secure sustainable employment.
The project offers remedial after school classes for girls, in which well-performing students in higher grades (Big Sisters) provide academic support and mentoring to the students in lower grades, and feedback to teachers the areas in which they need to provide additional support in class. The project provides training for teachers to improve literacy and numeracy. The mentoring schemes and non-formal girls’ clubs encourage girls to develop essential life skills, improve their employability, and build their confidence and self-esteem.
