Gender Responsive Pedagogy 

Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, Senegal, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia 

Teachers who are equipped to create inclusive classrooms are critical to ensuring that girls who are in school stay in school, so we have been collaborating with the Forum for African Women Educationalists (FAWE), UNICEF, and UNESCO, to develop a gender responsive pedagogy (GRP) toolkit and teacher trainings to be used across Africa.

Gender Equity Creative Advocacy Practicums (CAP)

Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda

 Girls in the Sauti ya Dada program have the opportunity to participate in a CAP. Leveraging the problem-solving skills gained from their training, the girls analyze the root cause of an issue that is a barrier to girls’ education - such as teen pregnancy, environmental pollution, or early marriage - brainstorm solutions, and use storytelling, theater, or visual art as an advocacy tool to explain the issue to key stakeholders within their community.
