The Education for Life (EfL) project is funded by the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) under the Leave No Girl Behind (LNGB) funding window. The project aims at bringing about accelerated literacy and numeracy outcomes and life skills for the most marginalized Out of School Girls (OOSG) in underserved targeted counties of Isiolo, Garissa, Migori, Kisumu and Kilifi by transforming their educational and vocational attainment and lives.
More specifically, the Education for Life project works with severely marginalized girls (5,000) and boys (500) aged between 10–19 years with a target of 70% of those who never enrolled in school and 30% who dropped out without gaining basic education.
The project is implemented by ActionAid International Kenya as the lead agency in a Consortium, which comprises Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO) Kenya and Leonard Cheshire (LC). WERK is the external evaluator, tasked with conducting the qualitative and quantitative research for baseline, midline and endline evaluations.
