REAP (Rwandan Girls’ Education and Advancement Programme) will improve the life chances of marginalised girls in poor and rural areas. Through a holistic, partnership-based approach we will support school improvement, in turn supporting girls (as well as boys) to complete their education and enter employment.
We provide a range of targeted programmes to address the issues identified via our school monitoring and support process: Find out more about our School Performance Review process in our Virtual School.
Through improved education quality, financial literacy, life-skills training, empowerment initiatives, and tailored financial services, the project will address the economic and social challenges which are the most commonly cited barriers to girls’ education in Uganda and thereby enable 28,988 girls to complete a full cycle of education.
Building on our successful School Review and School Improvement Planning work, this practice-based enquiry will help us to understand why some community members are excluded from the school improvement cycle, and how we can help these marginalised groups to play a more active role in their schools.
The goal of the PTAE project is to promote transparency and accountability in education by addressing the heightened concerns among education stakeholders regarding effective governance and efficient management of education resources. The focus of the project in on tracking education resources in the project districts but with emphasis on the Ghana Partnership for Education Grant (GPEG).
To improve the quality of education, this project focuses on improving reading in the mother tongue in the early grades and enhancing the management and functionality of schools using Link’s innovative School Performance Review (SPR) process. Learner outcomes will be tested using the Early Grade Reading Assessment (EGRA). This project also aims to raise awareness of the value of reading among wider school communities in Uganda, particularly supporting the Ugandan Ministry of Education and Sport’s (MoES) initiative to teach in the learner’s mother-tongue.
