The GEC-T project will help support girls in PEAS Schools to complete lower secondary and in their pathways beyond lower secondary education. The project will assist PEAS to contribute towards a situation in Uganda — and worldwide — wherein all girls can pursue a successful post-school pathway of their choosing, whether that is further education, formal or self-employment, or family life. For girls to be well-prepared to transition from school successfully, they need to (i) complete a quality secondary education, (ii) have a realistic plan for their future, and (iii) be equipped with the critical skills and knowledge needed to pursue their goals and lead happy, healthy lives. PEAS will meet the GEC-T outcomes of transition, learning and sustainability in the following ways: Transition: The PEAS GEC-T project will enable marginalised girls to make a successful transition either: Through the lower secondary school cycle to their 0-Level examination; From lower secondary (0-Level) into upper secondary (A-Level), TVET, or economic activity; From upper secondary (A-Level) into tertiary education, TVET, or economic activity Learning: The project will focus on improving learning outcomes for marginalised girls in the following areas: · Developing and improving functional literacy and numeracy skills as enablers of girls' success in whatever post-O-Level pathway they choose; · Developing entrepreneurial/ economic skills to support transition to productive economic activity; · Developing relevant "Life Skills" including both subject content (including Sexual Health and Reproductive Education) and skills/attributes (such as leadership, collaboration and communication). Sustainability: The project is designed to be sustainable after the grant period through: · Advocating for a reformed PPP to increase government capitation grants for 0-Level and A-Level students · Building up an endowment fund to mitigate the risk of a no-PPP scenario · Adding boarding facilities to increase boarding fee revenue. This project will dramatically improve the learning and life chances of marginalised girls. Staying on in education or training delays marriage and sexual relationships resulting in early pregnancy. In Uganda, women with higher levels of education are also likely to have fewer, healthier children. For those marginalised girls who end their education at lower secondary, PEAS will prepare them to enter the workforce or to set up their own businesses with the aim of improving productivity and increasing earnings.
