Getting Girls Back to School in East Africa (Knowledge facilitation)
Gender and Social Development
The goal of the ‘Getting Girls Back to School in East Africa’ project is to understand how Covid-19 has affected girls’ education and what near-term efforts are needed to ensure girls get back to school and learn.
The participatory process is to crowdsource from on-the-ground experiences of, and research by, East African organisations. With the recent (and impending) re-opening of schools in countries in the region, there is an opportunity to engage interested members of the Regional Educational Learning Initiative (RELI) network and a wider group of gender experts from the region in an explicit conversation about girls’ education in order to:
- Understand the current problems
- Identify gaps in our understanding
- Illuminate solutions
- Coordinate messages.
MannionDaniels is acting as the knowledge facilitator, to:
- Gather information: conduct semi-structured Key Informant Interviews and a rapid literature review to analyse and produce a summary report and one-page brief on current problems and research gaps in girls’ education in the context of Covid-19 in the region.
- Plan and convene two virtual workshops including: co-designing the convening to ensure a participatory, inclusive and virtual process and good facilitation, handle all production aspects, develop agenda, visual story-telling and infographics.
