The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) launched the Girls’ Education Challenge (GEC) in 2012 and since then has added a Phase II of the programme which covers the period 2017-2025.
Phase II focuses on 41 projects operating in 17 countries. The two expected outcomes overall are:
• Improved learning outcomes for marginalised girls; and
• Increased transition through key stages of education, training, or employment.
The Independent Evaluation of Phase II is the latest report from the GEC, launched this month.
It has a thematic focus on disability and looks at the ways GEC projects have supported girls with disabilities and the impact on these girls, their teachers, families and communities.
