HOT OFF THE PRESS: FINAL RESULTS FOR OUR GIRLS' EDUCATION PROJECT, ETHIOPIA

We're thrilled to share the final endline results from our Girls' Education Challenge project, Improved Girls’ Learning in Rural Wolaita, funded by UK Aid. Over the past four years this holistic project has worked at community-level across four of the most remote and disadvantaged districts of Wolaita Zone in southern Ethiopia to improve 123 primary schools and support 62,777 girls to learn and stay in school. The project has sustained transformational progress across key intervention areas, boosting girls' literacy by 197%, numeracy by 301% and retention in school by 30%.

Education Conference Success

Under the INSPIRE Project Link supported Mchinji District to hold their first Education Conference, bringing together parents, teachers, learners, education officials and Ministry representatives to discuss how the schools in the District are performing against the National Education Standards, and how to work together to improve learning outcomes.
