Empowering Young Female Teachers to Create Inclusive Learning Environments for Marginalised Girls project aims at improving Access to Education and completion of primary and secondary school education by the vulnerable girls aged 10-20 years old through addressing the barriers that are preventing marginalised girls from an opportunity to stay in school and access quality primary and secondary education in Nchalo in Chikwawa district in Malawi through training of female Agent of Change (AoC) teachers, training of girls in health life skills which include lessons about sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). By providing training for female Agent of Change (AoC) teachers the project supports schools to create girl-friendly learning environments and promote girls’ awareness of SRHR , as well as encouraging greater parental and community support and engagement. These young female teachers also serve as role models to the girls in the targeted schools. The project is also improving girls’ SRH knowledge and practice, confidence and participation in class leading to gains in retention, achievement and learning in school.
