Midline Evaluation Services for the Sisters for Sisters Education-II project
Sisters for Sisters’ Education-II (SfSE-II) program will be implemented between 2017 and 2021. It envisions that marginalized adolescent girls from four districts in Nepal – Surkhet, Parsa, Dhading and Lamjung – will transition from basic to secondary education and secondary to upper secondary, empowered to leave school to either secure a sustainable livelihood or continue with education. Apart from that, encouraging the out-of-school girls to join primary schools also falls under the project’s major intervention. The project has also envisioned that the beneficiary groups will be equipped with skills, bolstered by strong learning outcomes that improve employability, enhance confidence and self-esteem to act as leaders, and enable them to influence and control their own sexual and reproductive health rights. In this regard, major factors like attendance, knowledge, skills, confidence, economic empowerment, digital competency among others shall be taken into consideration during the interventions. During the course of interventions the potential stakeholders for engagement are marginalized girls, community, school and government. Major forms of interventions include Big Sister-Little Lister mentoring, peer learning support, teacher and local government accompaniment and coaching, and community engagement through a wide variety of volunteering roles and expertise sharing from implementing partners and resource partners.
