WHAT ARE THE GREP’S AIMS?
IMPROVE GIRLS’ ACCESS TO EDUCATION
Increasing girls’ enrolment in primary schools through social mobilization and advocacy in marginalized communities
IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF GIRLS’ EDUCATION
Enhancing student retention and education quality by improving school facilities and learning environments – activating parent-teacher committees (PTCs), school management committees (SMCs) and training teachers on multi-grade teaching and activity-based learning
IMPROVE EDUCATION OFFICIALS’ CAPACITY
Boosting the capacity of district and provincial education officials to create an enabling environment for girls’ education
HOW DOES THE PROGRAMME WORK?
The Girls’ Right to Education Programme increases access to, and improves the quality of, girls’ primary education in Pakistan through three inter-connected components. These pair institutional interventions with context-specific, localized actions at the community level.
GREP’s provincial and area-specific projects are implemented through local civil society organizations (CSOs), in consultation with national, provincial and area education departments. UNESCO also conducts research on girls’ education to guide the programme and inform course corrections. The GREP is funded by multiple donors, including the Government of Pakistan, Educate a Child - A programme of Education Above All, Korea International Cooperation Agency and the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation.
