The project aims to improve the academic success of vulnerable young and adolescent girls in secondary education in the Grand Sud region. The project supports the Quality Education Program in Haiti (PEQH) implemented by the World Bank and the Ministry of National Education and Professional Training (MENFP). This capacity building programme is based on an education model that focuses on gender equality. It aims to improve governance, access and quality of education, including learning conditions. Project activities include: 1) strengthening the governance of the MENFP, through a gender-disaggregated data management system and evidence-based quality control, ensuring that schools provide inclusive education in appropriate facilities; 2) training school staff to deliver quality inclusive education and prevent gender-based violence; 3) engaging school communities in the management of school improvement plans and engaging girls' and boys' school clubs to promote girls' rights and combat stigma. Project beneficiaries include a total of 100,000 vulnerable young and adolescent girls in 170 secondary schools in the poorest communities of Grand Sud.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: 1) strengthening the governance and quality control of the MENFP improves access to schools and ensures that they provide gender-focused education in adequate school facilities; 2) school teachers and principals received training and deliver inclusive education that reduces stereotypes and sexual violence; 3) school facilities are safer and better suited for adolescent girls; communities and school clubs are aware of girls rights and their sexual and reproduction rights. At the end of the project, the academic success rate in secondary school, particularly for vulnerable young and adolescent girls, has increased.
