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 2020 include: (1) 2,000 girls in the city of Abidjan increased their awareness on the importance of girls’ education, through the Sephis Tour, a program created by girls for girls that consists of conferences with panels made up of young girl leaders and influencers, and workshops on the culture of excellence at school and outside of school. They also increase their awareness on the importance of girls’ education through examples of women leaders with whom they can identify; (2) 150 young people were trained on journalism and radio techniques, and produced six programs on girls’ education, with an audience of more than 1.04 million people; (3) 125 secondary school teachers (of which 40 were women) and 400 primary school teachers (of which 154 were women) were trained in inclusive, non-violent, gender-sensitive educational approaches; (4) more than one million young people were exposed to information on technical education and vocational training, particularly for girls, through U-Report, a social platform available through SMS and Facebook, where young people express their views on issues that matter to them through short surveys every two weeks. The results are then disseminated on social media and in the media to create a positive dialogue and give young people a voice; and (5) 41 officers from statistics agencies were trained in the collection, monitoring and analysis of data on girls' education.
