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). This project is providing additional funds in response to the immediate needs for education and gender-based violence generated by the coronavirus (COVID-19). Project activities include: (1) developing a distance learning monitoring system; (2) producing national educational resources in digital form for broadcast on radio/television; and (3) supporting the continuity of essential social services for the protection of women and girls.

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.

Results achieved

Among the results achieved until December 2021: (1) 1,000 smart phones and 360 computers were provided to the Ministry of National Education with an e-learning application to facilitate the continuity of school activities despite the constraints related to COVID-19; (2) personal protective equipment (masks, hydroalcoholic gel, liquid soap) was distributed for teachers in 403 formal educational institutions and 10 non-formal educational institutions; (3) 168 health providers participated benefited from capacity building on psychological first aid and containment management.
