The Stop Violence Against Girls in School (SVAGS) project is being implemented simultaneously in Ghana, Kenya and Mozambique.
The project is working towards four key outcomes:
- In Kenya, Ghana and Mozambique, a legal and policy framework that specifically addresses violence against girls exists and is being implemented at all levels
- Violence against girls by family members, teachers and peers in the intervention districts is reduced by 50% from baseline statistics
- In the portfolio intervention districts, enrolment of girls is increased by an average 22%, girls’ dropout rate decreases by an average 20% and substantial progress is made towards gender parity in education
- 14,000 girls in the portfolio intervention districts report the confidence to challenge the culture of violence in and around schools
