Project

Strategic Approaches to Girls’ Education (STAGE)

WEI’s Strategic Approaches to Girls’ Education (STAGE) project will target up to 17,000 10-14 year old, out-of-school girls and 15-19 year old teenage mothers and other highly-marginalised girls living in target regions across Ghana.

The project will adapt learning materials and establish designated learning centres for these girls which will deliver literacy, numeracy and life skills training, and will help to establish pathways for girls’ successful transition into formal and informal education programmes, vocational training and eventual employment or self-employment.

Activities

  • Delivering an eight-month Accelerated Learning Programme (ALP) and, on the informal learning track, an eight-month vocational training programme with master craftsmen and a focus on life skills which will incorporate both financial and digital literacy training.
  • Introducing livelihood activities to facilitate girls’ learning and transition via education pathways
  • Building awareness around gender, social inclusion and marginalisation for teacher educational institutions with a view to supporting more inclusive approaches to education.
  • Partnering with local master craftsmen/women and local institutions to provide learning and employment opportunities for girls.
