Description 

The project aims to partner with women's rights organizations in crisis- and conflict-affected and fragile situations of sub-Saharan Africa to build their capacity to effectively produce and use quality data and evidence to advocate for women and girls’ right to education and to make their voices heard in decision-making processes. Project activities include: (1) adapting Equal Measures 2030’s Data for Advocacy training curriculum to focus on barriers to girls’ and women’s education in crisis- and conflict-affected or fragile situations; (2) delivering this curriculum in a workshop to 50 women’s rights organizations from crisis- and conflict-affected or fragile sub-Saharan African countries; (3) conducting deeper analysis of the data, evidence and research on barriers to girls’ and women’s education by women’s rights organizations in two crisis- and conflict-affected or fragile countries; (4) completing a research and opinion leader survey on barriers to girls’ and women’s education in crisis- and conflict-affected or fragile situations; and (5) influencing key targets to collect and use quality data on barriers to girls’ and women’s education in crisis- and conflict-affected or fragile situations.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased production and use of quality data and evidence by women’s rights organizations to effectively advocate for equitable access to education and learning by girls and women in crisis- and conflict-affected and fragile situations; and (2) improved production and use of quality data and evidence by key stakeholders, potentially including but not limited to education ministries, UN agencies and non-governmental organizations to drive equitable and coordinated provision of education for girls and women in crisis- and conflict-affected and fragile situations.
