Description and results


The project reduces barriers to access and retention for more than 700,000 girls and adolescent girls between the ages of 10 to 19 in the North-East, West and Central regions of Côte d'Ivoire and the Abidjan district (Abobo and Yopougon-Songon). Project activities include: (1) training leaders of women's and youth organizations on advocacy for compulsory schooling and girls' enrolment; (2) improving access to comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services; (3) building the capacity of structures to prevent and respond to gender-based violence; and (4) training educators on the design of educational materials, taking into account gender and disability.

Expected results

The expected outcomes of this project include: (1) equitable and increased access for girls, adolescent girls and women, including those with disabilities, to inclusive and quality education and learning opportunities; and (2) equitable and coordinated provision of safe, quality and gender-sensitive formal and non-formal education for girls, adolescent girls and boys and women.
