The project aims to contribute to the leadership, retention and success of adolescent girls at the middle and general secondary levels through the integration of gender and child protection in the performance management of institutions and school actors in Senegal. It aims to support the creation of a protective environment for girls, promoting their academic and professional orientation, and to put in place incentives, such as performance contracts including gender indicators, for better accountability for the performance of actors in the education system. Project activities include the following: (1) supporting educational institutions to include gender in performance management; (2) providing support to educational stakeholders (teachers, institutions, decentralized structures) to make them aware of gender and the protection of adolescent girls in the school system; (3) developing performance contracts and tools for planning, monitoring and managing the performance of educational institutions to integrate the protection approach for adolescent girls in the school system; (4) ensuring awareness among community stakeholders and families on the issues of gender, health and the protection of adolescent girls in the school system, and of encouraging their educational and professional direction; and (5) developing necessary teaching aids. The project aims to reach 25,000 adolescent girls at the middle and secondary levels, 3,000 professionals in decentralized structures, 640 officers in educational institutions, 1,600 professors and 480 community stakeholders.
