Key Information

The AF will continue to support the interventions of the parent IDA program related to equitable access and learning outcomes at both the basic and secondary levels. These include providing scholarships for girls at the basic level and pro-poor scholarships to support retention at the secondary level for needbased students many of whom are girls from poor and marginalized households. Additionally, the parent program also supports pro-science scholarships for girls to enable girls to be more competitive for employment in the high demand science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) sector. The AF will further support in enhancing the current EMIS to collect and report gender-disaggregated data for more efficient targeting to reduce inequity and improve the education outcomes for girls. Key activities to track gender-disaggregated data are (a) measurement of PDO Indicator 3: Survival rate to Grade 8 and Grade 12 (disaggregated by gender), and (b) PDO Indicator 4: measurement of NER in basic and secondary education in 15 most disadvantaged districts as ranked in the equity index disaggregated by gender); and (c) strengthening of the EMIS.
