Girl Education Challenge – GEC Wasichana Wote Wasome (Let All Girls Learn) Project Midline Evaluation Report

This is a midline report of the Wasichana Wote Wasome (WWW – ‘Let All Girls Learn’) project. The project aims to improve school enrolment, retention, attendance and learning outcomes for marginalised girls in Kenya. The initiative is implemented in eight counties – six in Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (Turkana, Samburu, Marsabit, Tana River, Kwale and Kilifi) and two in urban slums (Nairobi and Mombasa).

Although the project encountered various challenges including introduction of the national wide Tusome Project that had serious implications on the project design as well as delayed material development; high teacher attrition, heightened insecurity in some counties, a large geographical spread in hard to reach areas and contamination, the midline evaluation found that the project has made good progress and is largely on track.
