Description and results


The project aims to increase the school completion rate of 32,700 girls and adolescent girls between the ages of 10 and 18, mainly in the Tonkpi region and the Abidjan district in Côte d’Ivoire. This is expected to be achieved through increased access to education for girls and adolescent girls and the provision of gender-sensitive, safe and inclusive education. The project also allows adolescent girls who have dropped out of school because of the conflict to access the education system through vocational training in order to ensure a sustainable future. Project activities include the following: (1) producing and broadcasting the television program Voices of Youth to promote girls’ right to education and to engage communities in claiming this right; (2) training 385 teachers on gender and active pedagogy to take gender needs into account; and (3) supporting vocational and technical training institutions in providing and promoting training for out-of-school adolescent girls in non-traditional fields.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include the following: (1) increased equitable access for girls to safe, inclusive and quality education and learning opportunities; (2) equitable, coordinated and improved provision of gender-sensitive and quality formal education from early childhood to the end of secondary school for girls; and (3) increased equitable provision of gender-sensitive, quality technical and vocational training for adolescent girls, including out-of-school adolescent girls.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of March 2022 include: (1) 1,247,097 people (including 568,149 girls) participated in formal and non-formal pre-primary learning programs during school closure; (2) sensitized 2,000 girls in the city of Abidjan to the importance of girls' education; (3) trained 592 girls and 408 boys aged 10 to 18 in 20 high schools and colleges. These young people then proposed 80 solutions to the obstacles to girls' education; (4) received 63,932 calls on the hotline dedicated to children in distress. The operators were able to assist children in violent situations and refer victims to the appropriate services; (5) 125 secondary school teachers (including 40 women) and 400 primary school teachers (including 154 women) were trained in inclusive, non-violent, and gender-sensitive educational approaches; and (6) more than one million young people were exposed to information on technical education and vocational training, especially for girls, through U-Report, a social platform for young people express their views on issues that are important to them through short surveys. The results are then shared on social media and in the media to create positive dialogue and give youth a voice. Côte d'Ivoire's users have grown from 900,000 to 3.3 million (including 1 million girls).
