Our approach

FAWE’s work is to encourage governments, international organisations and local communities to enact policies and provide positive learning environments that treat girls and boys equally.

We use a four-pronged approach to transform girls' education and to achieve gender equity and equality in education across Africa:

  • Policy advocacy – influencing governments and other partners to review existing educational policies and adopt strategies to achieve greater and better participation of girls’ in education.
  • Community advocacy – building public awareness on the social and economic value of girls’ education so that citizens themselves take responsibility for the task and collectively work to support the agenda.
  • Interventions – developing and promoting models that demonstrate that contexts can be created that are conducive to girls’ enrolment, continuation and successful completion of the school cycle.
  • Replication and mainstreaming – encouraging governments to adopt and generalise innovations that have demonstrated positive impacts on girls’ schooling.
