Improving Access to and Quality Delivery of Education and Sexual Reproductive Health via Social Accountability.

PROJECT OBJECTIVE

The overall aim of this project is to improve access to and quality delivery of education and Sexual Reproductive Health via Social Accountability. The purpose is to increase the number of adolescent girls enrolling and completing education as well as girls involved in decision making processes in the community and school management. The project also intends to change the attitudes and behaviour of girls, parents, communities and officials in relation to adolescent girls’ right to education, gender and sexual reproductive health.

PROJECT BENEFICIES

The project is set to directly benefit 8,100 adolescents from 270 communities. Of these beneficiaries, 5,670 (70%) will be girls while the remainder (2,430) will be boys. The target beneficiaries will be adolescents from 10 – 19 years in the proposed project areas.

These direct beneficiaries will be trained and sensitised on their right to education, gender and sexual reproductive services. Furthermore, 1,620 (20% of the total beneficiaries) adolescents will be trained as peer educators who will go on to train and support other adolescents in their respective communities.
