The project aims to increase the school completion rate of 32,700 girls and adolescents aged 10 to 18, mainly in the Tonkpi region and the Abidjan district of Côte d'Ivoire. This project implements additional funds in response to the immediate needs for education and gender-based violence generated by COVID-19. Project activities include: (1) supporting social services to prevent and respond to gender-based violence and child exploitation; (2) providing training to social workers on psychosocial impact and mental health management; and (3) providing training to teachers on the protocol for safe reopening of schools. .

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased equitable access for girls to safe, quality and inclusive education and learning opportunities; (2) equitable, coordinated and improved provision of quality and gender-sensitive formal education from early childhood to the end of secondary school for girls; and (3) increased equitable provision of quality, gender-sensitive technical and vocational training for adolescent girls, including out-of-school adolescent girls.

Results achieved 

Results achieved as of March 2022 include: (1) protection services cared for 3,175 children (including 894 girls) living in a context of increased violence due to the pandemic; (2) provided hygiene kits for COVID-19 prevention to 200 schools; (3) provided cash transfers to 500 women heads of households made vulnerable by COVID-19 to enable their children to attend school.
