The project aims to increase the school completion rate of 32,700 girls and adolescent girls between the ages of 10 and 18, mainly in the Tonkpi region and the Abidjan district in Côte d’Ivoire. This is expected to be achieved through increased access to education for girls and adolescent girls and the provision of gender-sensitive, safe and inclusive education. The project also allows adolescent girls who have dropped out of school due to the conflict to access the education system through vocational training in order to ensure a sustainable future. Project activities include: (1) producing and broadcasting the television programme Voices of Youth to promote girls’ right to education and to engage communities in claiming this right; (2) train 385 teachers on gender and active pedagogy to take gender needs into account; and (3) support vocational and technical training institutions in providing and promoting training for out-of-school adolescent girls in non-traditional fields.
