Overcoming Barriers to Refugee Girls’ Education in Kenya (WUSC)

Our partnership with WUSC analyses the social norms and beliefs underpinning barriers to girl's education

Overcoming Barriers to Refugee Girls’ Education in Kenya (WUSC)

AVF  collaborated with the World University Service of Canada (WUSC) on the second phase of the UK aid-funded Kenyan Equity in Education Project (KEEP) in Dadaab and Kakuma refugee camps in Northern Kenya.

The pilot project tested AVF’s interactive radio approach (combining radio shows with SMS feedback) as a vehicle for inclusive, norm-challenging conversations to generate evidence on how to overcome social norms that present barriers to girls attending school.

In 2019, AVF will commence a three-year scaled-up project in both locations to harness the pilot’s momentum on supporting media-driven social and behaviour change and to deliver insights to KEEP II partners for adaptive programming.
