This project aims to enhance equitable and inclusive learning outcomes for refugee, internally displaced and host community children and youth, particularly girls and adolescent girls, living in South Sudan and Uganda. The project supports community-based organizations led by refugees and internally-displaced people (IDP) with technical and financial support. Project activities include: (1) facilitating an innovative, self-directed capacity assessment tool for refugee- and IDP-led organizations working on gender-responsive education; (2) designing and delivering training modules and providing technical assistance based on themes identified in assessments and on self-identified institutional gaps; (3) providing core, direct and multi-year small grants to refugee- and IDP-led organizations to help strengthen them and support gender-responsive education programming; (4) training women in refugee- and IDP-led organizations on effective leadership, human rights and peace-building; and (5) facilitating community engagement and dialogues with host communities, state institutions and policy makers on inclusive, gender-responsive education for refugee and internally-displaced children and youth. The project expects to reach an estimated at 132,040 beneficiaries, including 61,400 refugees, internally-displaced persons and host community children and youth.
