This project is focussed on helping girls in poor, rural communities to receive a quality education, in particular to transition from primary to secondary schooling. Our girls face intense pressure to drop-out of school from societal norms and a lack of opportunity. This project takes a holistic approach, tackling multiple barriers and supporting thousands of girls to receive the education they deserve.
We provide a range of targeted programmes to address the issues identified via our school monitoring and support process: Find out more about our School Performance Review process in our Virtual School.
We are taking a holistic, partnership-based approach to improving educational experiences and raising achievement for girls in rural Rwanda. By improving retention, enrolment, quality, governance and budgeting of education, the project will support girls in particular (as well as boys) to move up through the education system and into sustainable employment and livelihood opportunities.

Through improved education quality, financial literacy, life-skills training, empowerment initiatives, and tailored financial services, the project will address the economic and social challenges which are the most commonly cited barriers to girls’ education in Uganda and thereby enable 28,988 girls to complete a full cycle of education.
Building on our successful School Review and School Improvement Planning work, this practice-based enquiry will help us to understand why some community members are excluded from the school improvement cycle, and how we can help these marginalised groups to play a more active role in their schools.
