This second programme is a holistic six-year project specifically designed to

The project’s intervention logic is geared towards addressing
complex, multi-dimensional and interrelated barriers which obstruct girls’
educational attainment and transition. Our work is focused on the most

the project covers 540 schools – 480 primary and 60 secondary schools – spread
across 8 counties in arid and semi-arid lands (ASAL) and urban slums): Nairobi,
Mombasa, Kwale, Kilifi, Tana River, Turkana, Samburu and Marsabit.

It is implemented by a consortium of partners led by Education
Development Trust; other members of this consortium are Concern Worldwide,
Ananda Marga Universal Relief Team (AMURT) and Kesho Kenya.

The Field Officer is a key part of the GEC Transition Kenya
–Wasichana Wetu Wafaulu (WWW project) with primary responsibility of
implementing the project outputs in the community, households and girl level.
