Situation

Windle believes that quality education equips communities with the skills to build a secure future. Many in the listed countries have been deeply affected by persistent conflict over decades resulting in limited access to and poor quality of education. This is particularly affects girls who frequently drop out of education for a variety of cultural, social and environmental reasons, lack of female teacher role models, or as a direct consequence of insecurity.

Solution

Windle has a unique and longstanding partnership with these communities. We will invest in advocacy to increase resources and improve policy: we will invest in our capacity to implement transformative programmes: we will engage with communities, government and other partners to increase both the provision of education and the quality: we will invest in training female teachers and information technology and collaborate with regional structures such as IGAD.
