GIRLS EDUCATION CHALLENGE
The Girls' Education Challenge (GEC) program seeks to help up to a million of the world's poorest girls improve their lives through education.
I Choose Life-Africa's Jielimishe Girls' Education Challenge (GEC) Project is targeting to improve life chances of 10,123 marginalised girls and 6,890 boys from communities in Laikipia, Meru and Mombasa Counties. The five (5) year project, funded by the UK Government through the Department for International Development (DfID) will run from April 2017 to March 2022.
Building on the lessons learnt from Jielimishe GEC, the overall goal of Jielimishe GEC T is to improve the life chances of girls, 2,390 in primary school and 7,730 in secondary school using a holistic approach to complete a cycle of education, transition to the next level and demonstrate learning, as well as provide alternative pathways. Besides targeting girls as direct beneficiaries, the project also targets 6,980 boys (3,190 in upper primary and 3,790 in secondary schools).
