Description and results


This project aims to improve learning outcomes for women and girls in fragile and conflict-afflicted settings. The project supports the Safe to Learn Campaign, a global, inter-agency and multi-country initiative, dedicated to ending violence in and around schools, so children are free to learn, thrive and pursue their dreams. The project focuses on addressing violence as a barrier to girls’ education, and providing support for developing materials to enhance the integration of gender equality across the Safe to Learn Campaign. Project activities include: (1) increasing the knowledge and capacity of girls and boys, teachers, administrators, community members and religious leaders, to recognize the impact of violence in and around schools; (2) promoting positive gender equitable norms and preventing harassment through the use of positive discipline, and addressing gender stereotypes in communities; (3) strengthening education and child protection systems to be gender responsive by preventing sexual and gender-based violence in and around schools; and (4) empowering girls and boys by engaging them in the design and delivery of solutions to prevent and respond to violence through life skills education. The project expects to benefit 229,320 children, including 135,560 girls.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased equitable access to safe, secure, quality, inclusive education and learning for girls, adolescent girls, and women, including those with disabilities; (2) improved equitable and coordinated provision of safe, quality, gender-responsive, and evidence-based formal and non-formal education for women and girls; and (3) strengthened education and child protection systems and gender norms at the individual, community, institutional and policy levels.
