Our Vision: Our vision is to see 9,890 girls who Live, Learn, Laugh, and SCHIP in Strong, Creative, Holistic, Inclusive, Protective, Quality Schools, fulfilling their potential. There are few people who believe that education in Uganda can be done differently to current didactic methodology and achieve good examination results. However, we have begun to demonstrate that it is not only this possible but can also accelerate learning and make this the experience of the majority of Ugandan children. GEC-T will continue to transition girls from out of school, through one of 52 schools from outputs 1, 2 and 3 which use a mixed pedagogy of creative teaching that enhances cognitive and competency-based learning and takes girls on a journey of lifelong learning. 10 other schools will become SCHIP schools as a part of output 4 to give a comparison group of different interventions. Live: Girls will break the cycle of abuse, violence, exclusion, child marriage, poverty, weak parenting, broken education, and limited literacy. Girls will develop strategies for success and overcoming life barriers through competency-based skills development. Community mentors and engaged parents will support this life journey. Parents and schools will form local clusters that build extra-curricular learning opportunities for children. Learn: Girls will achieve enhanced learning outcomes in numeracy, literacy and competency-based skills that orientate them towards purposeful life pathways. Girls will learn new and higher skills inside and outside of the classroom through creative, engaging acquisition of knowledge. Their experience in school will set them on a life pathway of achieving gender equity in the classroom and into adulthood. Girls will be supported by responsible parents, innovative and creative teachers, committed mentors, skilled counsellors and inspiring peers. Their teachers will deliver exciting, quality, inclusive education in child-centred environments that use a variety of methodologies that suit different learning styles, with additional learning support for those who need it. Laugh: Girls will overcome the shattering impact of abuse, rejection and failure as psychosocial support and learning therapy builds resilience and confidence. Their schools will do no further harm and help children and families learn how to build safe communities. Local parents’ groups will train in holistic wellbeing, parenting, household strengthening, and adult literacy to help provide a smooth transition through to higher education. SCHIP: Learning will happen in partner schools where GEC girls have gone to help them become SCHIP schools that provide Strong, Creative, Holistic, Inclusive, Protective Quality learning environments with stronger educational and technical foundations that enable accelerated literacy, numeracy and competency-based learning that promote confidence and resilience. Girls will be helped to achieve gender equity in the classroom and into adulthood. Transition: Girls who are still struggling with consistent patterns of attendance will get in to education and stay in so that they can transition on from primary to secondary or vocational, or from lower secondary to higher secondary, vocational or work-based learning, and will have set a trend of lifelong learning. Girls with learning disabilities will become more independent and find a place of value as they contribute into the life of their family and community. Sustain: Girls will grow into mature women who will continue to make the most of every opportunity to learn and take their place in society. Schools will safeguard children and ‘do no harm’ to them. Alternative methods of creative, competency-based learning will give accelerated learning results and be integrated into the national curriculum. School voluntary policies will be implemented to match the law and Government guidelines so that there is equality of educational opportunity regardless of gender, disability or early pregnancy. Society will protect the wellbeing of children and ensure that child abuse in all its forms becomes a taboo and that perpetrators are brought to book.
