  • Title:
    Descriptive info: Our projects - 2014.. Partners: CARE Canada and CARE Afghanistan.. Although enormous progress has been made over the last few years in terms of school enrolment of girls in Afghanistan, keeping girls in school until graduation remains a real challenge.. Volatile security conditions and a lack of adequate facilities are preventing girls from sustaining their educational paths and completing their secondary education.. Given the impending withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan, there is an even greater need to continue a focus on ensuring safe and sustainable solutions for education for girls so that they are not left behind.. The proposed Safe Learning Environment for Girls’ Education project will be implemented in the Afghan province of Khost and will directly benefit 176 primary and lower secondary students (131 girls and 45 boys), 500 additional hub school students (300 girls and 200 boys), and 20 hub school officials and teachers.. The project will indirectly benefit 3,650 people, including the family members of the students, community residents and local labourers and vendors.. This partnership with.. will consolidate access to safe learning spaces through the construction of a school building, sustaining community engagement in community-based education, and improving the quality of hub schools through School Improvement Plans (SIPs).. Background.. In the Afghan constitution, education is defined as the right of all citizens and the government sees itself as setting the policy stage for education.. Despite the efforts of the Ministry of Education (MoE), the government does not have sufficient resources to address the immense need in the education sector.. As a result, there remains a large unmet need in Afghanistan for education programs that promote community ownership, and for equal opportunities to quality education for girls, particularly in the most remote and marginalized communities.. According to the United Nations Girls Education Initiative (UNGEI) report, Afghanistan has one of the highest proportions of primary school-age (7-12) children in the world: about 1 in 5.. Student enrolment in Afghanistan has increased eight-fold from less than a million in 2001 to over 7.. 58 million, with a current enrolment of 38% girls.. Despite significant progress since the fall of the Taliban, around 4 million children are still out of school, 60% of whom are girls.. One of the MoE assessments revealed that only 45% of enrolled girls complete primary-level education (at 0.. 63 on the Gender Parity Index, the worst in the world), while a mere 5% complete secondary education.. In the remote province of Khost bordering Pakistan, the lack of safe environment and quality education facilities discourages many girls from attending school full time and often forces them to drop out of school altogether.. The overall literacy rate for that province is 28%.. However, while more than 44% of men are literate, this is true for just 7% of women.. In the population aged between 15 and 24, the situation for men is better with 52% literacy, whereas for women the figure shows no change (7%).. On average, 38% of children between 6 and 13 are enrolled in school; however, the figure is around 61% for boys and only 14% for girls.. In 2011-12, the Afghanistan central statistic organization reported that boys account for approximately 86% of students and that, out of the 2,205 teachers working in schools in Khost Province, only 3% are women.. CARE is currently implementing the BEACON (Basic Education for Afghanistan Consortium) project in which most established community-based classes are conducted in people’s homes and community spaces such as a mosque.. There remains an urgent need to provide permanent resources  ...   include a tube well, latrine facilities, desks and chairs for students, other furniture and a playground.. 2.. Sustaining community involvement in community-based education.. CARE will work closely with School Management Committees on all project activities to enable communities to make decisions and engage in project management.. For example, communities will help ensure the security and protection of the school building during and after the construction process.. The community-driven approach will secure social acceptance and support for girls’ education in both the short and long terms.. 3.. Support hub schools for high quality teaching through the School Improvement Plan (SIP).. Hub schools refer to the formal government schools to which community-based education (CBE) classes have been registered.. Each CBE school is linked to a government school.. When children are registered in grade one, they are also registered at the nearest formal government school.. They will move to the formal school once they have completed the CBE school, as long as it is no more than 3 km away or their parents are happy for them to walk the distance.. Through this project, CARE intends to launch the School Improvement Planning (SIP), which will enable MoE hub schools to assess their own situation and develop their improvement plans (using INEE standards as guidelines).. School improvement is a continuous process used to ensure that all students are achieving at high levels.. Why partner with CARE Canada?.. CARE Canada operates through CARE International field offices in Afghanistan.. CARE first started working in Afghanistan in 1961 and is recognized as a leader in CBE provision in the country.. CARE has been working with local communities to promote social acceptance and support for girls’ education through the establishment of community-based schools.. These much needed schools provide an accessible learning platform within a local setting and have proven to be an effective means to extend education to thousands of marginalized and isolated children in Afghanistan.. CARE runs the only non-state lower secondary education program for girls in the country, and has successful teacher training programs for child friendly teaching, and library services for quality education.. CARE Afghanistan has been one of the few organizations able to deliver and support development programming in Afghanistan during the last four decades, despite very difficult circumstances and the challenging environment.. This is rendered possible due to CARE’s neutrality, sound knowledge of the country, very strong community acceptance and proven security procedures.. The investment of.. 60 millions girls.. will benefit from these organizational assets and will leverage existing CBE initiatives already anchored through strong partnerships with the local Ministry of Education and communities.. The CBE approach for this initiative will foster social involvement and accountability and will help mitigate risks related to the lack of social acceptance.. CARE Afghanistan employs the Programming in Insecure Environment (PIE) method for project implementation and is a leader in this approach.. CARE Afghanistan’s Safe and Security Unit (SSU) is responsible for constantly assessing risk levels in a specific project area and will adapt the project to mitigate any risks identified during these assessments.. The structure of CARE in Afghanistan already maximizes the use of local resources.. CARE has gender-balanced human resource policies in line with national labour legislation and our partners are all committed to gender equality.. The teams proposed are national staff with experience in and understanding of the region, language and culture of the intervention areas.. CARE has many years of experience in the province of Khost and a strong network of experts who can facilitate the recruitment of additional resources as needed..

  • Title:
    Descriptive info: Our projects - 2013/2014.. Oleleshwa Girls Secondary School in Kenya.. Partner: Free The Children.. Since 1999, Free The Children has focused on providing high quality primary education and on removing the barriers to girls’ education in partnership with Kipsigis, Maasai and Kisii communities in the Maasai Mara.. With the Oleleshwa Girls Secondary School project,.. is thrilled to continue our work with Free the Children in Kenya where we supported the Oloosiyioi Primary School in 2007 to provide education for some 300 primary students every year.. It is a natural extension of our support to enable the girls graduating from elementary school in the region to have access to a high quality, well rounded and practical high school education.. Free The Children (FTC) has built over 90 classrooms, in a region that has the highest primary school dropout rate in Kenya, resulting in increased enrolment, increased rates of graduation and improved academic achievement.. For example, over the past three years, the primary school graduation rate of girls has increased by 9%.. These girls also demonstrate superior academic achievement.. However, due to numerous obstacles such as domestic obligations, financial limitations, early marriage, childbirth and inadequate access to secondary school, young women in rural Kenya are unlikely to have the opportunity to attend secondary school.. Recognizing that secondary education provides a greater impact on the welfare of women during their lifetime than any other level of education and motivated by the achievement and passion of girls graduating from our primary schools, Free The Children has chosen to bring accessible secondary education to this region of Kenya.. Their first all-girls secondary school, Kisaruni, was opened on Kipsigis land in 2011.. Since its opening, the organization has witnessed the impact of Kisaruni on girls’ motivation and educational achievement at the primary school level.. Bolstered by support for girls’ secondary education throughout the communities, the number of applications received far exceeds the number of available openings at Kisaruni.. FTC thus decided to open another secondary school, Oleleshwa, on Maasai territory.. Oleleshwa will follow Kenya’s national curriculum and, like Kisaruni, will operate without government funding.. To ensure the students have a guaranteed secondary education, full scholarship funding for each student will be assured.. is providing $300,000 in funding over 2 years for the construction of 3 classrooms, 2 dormitories for 100 girls, a school garden and sports facilities.. This funding, in alignment with other donations for the school, will enable up to 200 girls per year to attend this innovative high school.. Alongside the Kisaruni Girls Secondary School, Oleleshwa will help  ...   high standards on national exams.. Provide young women with the tools for future success in academics, the labour force and community leadership.. Complementing the national curriculum, programming will incorporate:.. Employable skills.. relevant to the region, including agriculture, tourism and financial literacy training.. Students will gain employment in roles related to the local economy and, therefore, remain in their communities upon graduation.. Cultural education.. to facilitate the preservation of traditional cultures.. Leadership programming.. strategies to provide girls with the tools and confidence to become culturally grounded community leaders.. Technology.. including computer and science labs for practical, transferrable education.. Parental involvement.. to ensure students are supported and to augment cultural learning.. Why partner with Free the Children?.. Free the Children has been working with rural and marginalized communities in the Maasai Mara region of Kenya since 1999 with a large country office staffed by local professionals who work directly with community members and in partnership with local leaders and government.. FTC representatives and the team in Kenya itself would administer the funds and implement the project.. The project will be overseen by FTC senior staff member, Robin Wiszowaty.. Education projects are central to Free The Children’s holistic and sustainable development model, Adopt a Village.. Through the education pillar of this model, FTC builds and outfits primary schools including classrooms, libraries, gender-specific latrines, school gardens, kitchens and dining halls.. They also provide professional development, pedagogical training and on-site living accommodations for educators to ensure the highest quality of education.. Education projects are implemented in conjunction with the other pillars of its Adopt a Village model: clean water and sanitation, health, alternative income and livelihoods, and agriculture and food security.. This holistic model eliminates the obstacles preventing children from accessing primary education and equips communities with the tools needed to lift themselves from poverty.. An independent evaluation of Adopt a Village concluded that the model is effective at facilitating a path to economic self-sufficiency and prioritizing education and gender equality; it supports all of the millennium development goals focused on community-level development and is aligned with accepted components of successful development; it embraces several principles of sustainable development; and it utilizes cost-effective programs to produce complimentary, reinforcing outcomes.. FTC is committed to working in collaboration with communities to identify and address their needs.. With graduation rates increasing in their primary schools, particularly amongst young girls, the need for ongoing education was identified.. As such, FTC has chosen to implement comprehensive secondary education in the Maasai Mara region of Kenya with the establishment of the Oleleshwa Girls Secondary School..
