Wasichana Wote Wasome Project (WWW) 2013-2015- (UKAID )

A 3 year project within the Girl Education Challenge (GCE ) initiative. Project aims at advancing girl child Education agenda in the county targeting 25 schools in Samburu East and 38 schools in Mombasa. We target supporting 5000 girls between 6-16 years with improved enrollment, retention and performance in schools. Working in partnership with Centre for British Teachers Education Trust (CfBT) &  Concern Worldwide Girl Child Network the project will employ community health strategy, community dialogue, teacher coaching and gender sensitive pedagogy approaches to realize its objectives. 

 

By 2016, this project will lead to:

Across 8 counties:

Intervention Approaches:

  • Enrolment of 7,400 out of school girls into primary school
  • Retention of 6,400 marginalised girls in school, who would otherwise have dropped out
  • Transition of 3,200 marginalised girls to secondary school
  • Increased learning and attendance of a further 64,000 marginalised girls, leading to an additional 16,000 “girl-years” in school during the project lifetime and ensuring that their chances of staying on in education until the end of secondary school are greatly increased.

  • Kwale (GCN)

 

  • Marsabit

 

  • Mombasa

 

  • Nairobi

 

  • Samburu (GCN)

 

  • Tana River (GCN)

To achieve the outcomes the project will drive and support changes in four dimensions:

  • Girl in the Commmunity – to create, through Community Conversations, more support for girls’ education and acceptance of girls rights
  • Girl at Home – working with parents to send all girls to school, advise on health issues, providing support (e.g. back to school kits).
  • Girl at School – strengthening school environment to support girls’ attendance and retention. Additional caching for teachers, benefitting all students and working with SMCs to improve facilities if necessary (e.g. toilets).
  • Girl as a Person – improving girls’ readiness to learn by empowering them by increasing their physical and psycho-social wellbeing, to give them confidence to stay in or return to school.
