Frequently Asked Questions
1Where will the programme be implemented?
The programme is being implemented across all five divisions of Kampala (Central, Kawempe, Lubaga, Makindye, and Nakawa), reaching diverse geographical pockets of vulnerable girls.
2Who will the programme reach?
The programme targets two different categories of vulnerable adolescent girls:
- girls in upper primary, attending Universal Primary Education schools with high drop-out rates, who are at risk of not transitioning to Secondary school;
- adolescent girls who have dropped out of school, who are vulnerable and living in the corresponding school catchment areas.
3How are the participants selected?
The programme identifies participants by targeting the communities they live in and the schools they attend (a geographical-categorical targeting mechanism), through an analysis of the levels of multidimensional child and household poverty, school drop-out rates, and household-level vulnerabilities.
