Towards equal opportunities for all: empowering girls through partnerships in education
The report is divided into two sections; overcoming girls’ exploitation, and reaching marginalised girls. In the first section, studies include a programme in Indonesia, the ‘Trafficking In Children in South and South-East Asia’ (TICSA II). In the second section, the document looks at the ‘Alternative Learning Systems’ (ALS) for out-of-school youths and adults in the Philippines.
Lessons learned from the project in Indonesia include:
- the need to dedicate more resources to provide for psychosocial and other support needs of beneficiaries
- the need to provide more supplementary assistance to beneficiaries at upper-primary and lower secondary levels
- the programme could not have been successfully implemented without the active involvement of all education stakeholders in the community
- the rigorous monitoring and supervision is essential to ensure the quality of ALS programmes and their graduates
