Learning Interventions

Education empowers individuals to face the challenges of becoming productive citizens. In addition to its integral value for individuals, education is also a key determinant of health, population dynamics and economic development.

The widespread adoption of free primary school education has improved enrolment numbers even though governments are still struggling to meet the rising demands for schooling. The sudden increase in enrolment numbers has also led to a decrease in the quality of education offered. This decrease has been observed in poor performance of pupils in early grades and teacher’s limited knowledge on content and pedagogical skills.

Improving Learning Outcomes and Transition to Secondary School through Community Participation and After School Support among Disadvantaged Girls

Program: Education

The goal of the proposed project is to promote access and quality secondary education among girls who live in the informal urban settlements. The Project shall also demonstrate how an education intervention with parental and community support can address the inter-generational inequality of access to education.

The outcomes of this project are improved learning outcomes, improved attendance, and transition to secondary school for girls.  The project’s immediate impact is to improve learning outcomes and transition to secondary school among girls from urban poor households.  In the long run, a generation of more mothers with secondary level education shall result hence improved child and maternal health outcomes.
