Description and results


The project aims to improve equal learning outcomes for girls and boys at the primary school level in Ghana, Mozambique and Rwanda, in the context of COVID-19. Project activities include: (1) developing learning content for radio and television broadcasting to promote returning to school and to mitigate dropout risks for girls; (2) sensitizing girls on mechanisms for self-protection against sexual and gender-based violence; (3) mapping and strengthening existing community and school referral systems for sexual and gender-based violence and child rights abuse; (4) sensitizing community leaders on supporting girls that are unable to access education; (5) conducting refresher trainings to teachers on gender-responsive play-based learning; and (6) capacitating teachers on gender equality, child protection, and safeguarding in crisis contexts. Project beneficiaries include 307,506 children (of which 168,825 are girls), and 231,500 community members, including teachers, mothers, fathers and caregivers in all three countries.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased continuous learning opportunities for children during school closures related to COVID-19; (2) reduced barriers to education for girls and boys resulting from COVID-19 school closures, through support to Ministries of Education and communities; (3) improved training of teachers to incorporate COVID-19 considerations on gender-responsive play-based learning; and (4) increased capacity of the community to prevent and respond to sexual and gender-based violence.
