Keeping Girls At School Program: Impact Evaluation

Organization : CARE

Imprint : Laterite Ltd, 2015

The Keeping Girls At School (KGAS) program is an initiative of CARE Rwanda aimed at reducing the number of girls who drop out of secondary school and increasing the share of girls that transit from lower to upper secondary education. CARE Rwanda and its implementing partners worked in 30 schools, across three districts in the Southern Province. The KGAS initiative has three main channels through which it aims to reduce dropout rates among adolescent girls: i) Providing mentorship opportunities for girls within the context of Girls Clubs; ii) Engaging girls in voluntary savings and loans (VSL) and income-generating activities; and iii) Establishing a Community Score Card (CSC) system that allows girls to comment on and influence institutions affecting their education experience.
