Have you read the Education 4 All Evaluation Report?
In 2013 and 2014, Nukoko Education worked closely with its partner Réseau des Jeunes pour le Développement Togo (REJED) to conduct an evaluation on the first five years of the Education 4 All program in Togo. The Education 4 All program improves access to primary school for girls in and around the region of Namaré in the northwest of Togo.
The results and impacts of the program, as outlined in the evaluation report, so far are encouraging.
- 100% of surveyed girls believe that the program has allowed them to have a satisfactory education and better access to academic success.
- 95% of surveyed parents (of sponsored girls) agreed that investing in their daughter’s education is important, and 70% advocated investing more time and money in the education of girls generally (up from 20% in 2007)
- 91% of surveyed teachers noted that girls are now less confined to housework and succeed as well as boys do at school
- Education 4 All has clearly been able to erode a primary barrier of access for girls: the financial constraint
- It has also been able to remove another barrier towards access and quality: adequate school materials
- Moreover, through additional seminars and workshops within the community, including parents and students (of both genders) the erosion of bias against girls succeeding in school has been steady
Read the 2013-14 evaluation report to learn more about the impacts of the program, and the recommendations over the next five years.
Nukoko Education is an entirely donor-funded, volunteer-run non-profit organization based in Canada.
