  • Girls' Education Challenge - Transition (GECT) This Girls' Education Challenge Phase 2 will enable up to 1 million marginalised girls (currently supported through Phase 1) to continue to learn, complete primary school and transition on to secondary education. A further 500,000 highly marginalised adolescent girls, who are out of school, will also be targeted to gain literacy, numeracy and other skills relevant for life and work. It is estimated that at least 400,000 girls will complete junior secondary school in the first four years of the extension. The extension will build on what we have learnt so far in Phase 1 and further deepen global understanding of what works for girls? education, particularly during adolescence and in the transition from education to work. Total Project Budget: £272,236,724 DFID Funding: £164,478,524

  • Leave No Girl Behind (LNGB) Leave No Girl Behind is a new initiative announced in July 2016 as part of the Girls? Education Challenge. This initiative will support interventions providing literacy, numeracy and skills relevant for life and work to highly marginalised, adolescent girls who have never attended or have already dropped out of school. So far, the Girls? Education Challenge has reached over one million disadvantaged girls. We want to reach more girls, especially those most marginalised girls with new and innovative solutions and scale up and adopt successful existing interventions to deliver quality education and skills to the hardest to reach girls.

  • Project iMlango-T: ICT for Girls Education in Kenya iMlango-T is the second phase of the DFID-funded Girls Education Challenge project based in four counties in Kenya. In this phase, iMlango will continue to provide computers and internet connection for 205 schools in Kenya, as well as educational maths and literacy content via the iMlango portal. In the second phase of iMlango, we are focusing not just learning outcomes in the primary schools, but also transition pathways for our cohort of girls, ensuring that as they finish primary school they proceed to further education. We are also supporting girls clubs in the primary schools to help girls aspire to education and support them in life skills and navigating difficult issues that arise as they grow older.
