About the Programme: Wasichana Wetu Wafaulu – Swahili for ‘let our girls succeed’. This second programme is a holistic six-year project specifically designed to strengthen the transition of these girls from primary into either secondary school or alternative, productive livelihood pathways.
The project’s intervention logic is geared towards addressing complex, multi-dimensional and interrelated barriers which obstruct girls’ educational attainment and transition. Our work is focused on the most marginalised girls, so geographically we work in arid and semi-arid lands (ASAL) and urban slums in Kenya.
Funded by UK aid through the Girls’ Education Challenge (GEC), the project covers 540 schools – 480 primary and 60 secondary schools – spread across 8 counties in arid and semi-arid lands (ASAL) and urban slums): Nairobi, Mombasa, Kwale, Kilifi, Tana River, Turkana, Samburu and Marsabit.
It is implemented by a consortium of partners led by Education Development Trust; other members of this consortium are Concern Worldwide, Ananda Marga Universal Relief Team (AMURT), Kesho Kenya and Pastoralists Girls Initiative (PGI).
