Training Secondary School Teachers on Peer Education For Implemented in Wasichana Wetu Wafaulu Project

1. Introduction

Education Development Trust (Ed Dev Trust), formerly CfBT Education Trust, is an education services organization with over 50 years’ experience in primary and secondary education.

Our vision is to provide outstanding, sustainable education solutions that transform and improve education and life chances of children and young people worldwide.

We have specialist experience in strengthening education systems and supporting school improvement in post-conflict, transition and early-recovery fragile states.

Ed Dev Trust programmes in Sub-Saharan Africa focus on improving efficiency, effectiveness and relevance of national education systems and school programmes to improve access, retention, and
quality of learning.

The organisation is currently implementing a Wasichana Wetu Wafaulu, a project in Kenya.

Wasichana Wetu Wafaulu, ‘Let Our Girls Succeed’ is a six-year DFID funded project, under the Girls Education Challenge portfolio. The project is implemented in two contexts: Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASALs) in eight Counties namely: Turkana, Samburu, Marsabit, Tana River, Kwale and Kilifi, Nairobi and Mombasa.

The project is supporting about 72,000 girls in 480 primary schools, 45 secondary schools and 25 TVETs to complete their current phase of education, achieve improved learning outcomes and transition successfully to a productive and positive next phase. Through this project, our girls will gain the skills, qualifications, and confidence to take control of their lives.

Ed Dev Trust is the lead implementer working with partners – AMURT, Concern Worldwide, Pastoral Girls initiative, Kesho Kenya and WERK. The project adopts an integrated approach towards girl child education by putting in place strategies that address the girl herself, the girl at home, the girl at school and the girl in the community.

The project works in collaboration with key government agencies – Ministry of Education Science (MoEST) and the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development
(KICD) and CEMASTEA as well as the County Governments.
