Description and results


This project supports UNICEF in strengthening the Ministry of Education and Human Development’s capacity to implement its gender equality strategy to address gender barriers and sexual and reproductive health and rights in education. Project activities include: (1) training of up to 100 education officers, planners and staff responsible for promoting gender equality in order to address gender barriers in education; (2) developing guidelines on menstrual hygiene management and providing gender-appropriate sanitation facilities in up to 28 targeted schools; and (3) mobilizing up to 500 communities in Tete and Zambezia, two of the poorest provinces with a significant number of school-aged children, to reduce gender-based violence, foster safe learning environments and combat child, early and forced marriages.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for the project include: (1) increased capacity of up to 100 education officers, planners and staff responsible for promoting gender equality at the national, provincial and district levels to address gender issues in education; (2) increased mobilization of up to 500 school communities in Tete and Zambezia to address issues of early pregnancies, early marriages, and gender-based violence; and, (3) improved access to sanitation facilities and menstrual hygiene management in approximately 28 schools to increase retention of girls.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of March 2020 include: (1) wells and hand pumps were installed in 24 primary schools, benefiting approximately 8,400 students; (2) 99 sanitation blocks were constructed in 33 primary schools, benefiting 11,500 school children and helping to increase school retention rate to 94%; (3) training and tools were provided to more than 3,600 school council members on how to monitor teachers performance and student absenteeism, thus helping to reduce the prevalence of school dropouts, violence against children, early pregnancy and child marriage; (4) training on how to use existing government tools for monitoring school councils was provided to 341 school directors (of which 110 were women), 135 primary school cluster coordinators (of which 51 were women), 30 provincial education officials (of which 12 were women), and 40 district education officials; and (5) 1,149 school council members (of which 341 were women) were trained on the use of grants provided to schools, including a portion that can be used to support vulnerable children.
