The Gender Responsive Education and Transformation (GREAT) project is a five-year (2018-2023) project to be implemented in Ghana, Mozambique and Rwanda. Using a play-based pedagogical approach, the GREAT project will work towards the ultimate outcome of improved quality education for girls and boys at the primary school level. This will be achieved by i) integrating gender-responsive play-based learning (GRPBL) into teaching practice; ii) engaging parents and caregivers in addressing gender-specific learning needs of girls and boys, including at-risk children; and iii) increasing integration of gender-responsive play-based learning in in-service and pre-service teacher training.
