Educating Girls with Disabilities - Study Brief

Case Study

This study reviews how projects in the Girls’ Education Challenge Phase II (GEC II) supported girls with disabilities (GWDs) and the outcomes of these interventions.

The most common interventions undertaken by the projects were teacher training, peer activities, after-school clubs for the GWDs, and community and family awareness sessions promoting the importance of education and providing assistive devices. GWDs across the programme showed improvements in socio-emotional skills including increased selfconfidence and more positive interactions with family, peers, and community members, as well as some progress in literacy and numeracy outcomes. Detailed case studies in three countries showed improvements in socio-emotional skills and broader life skills, as well as increased aspirations. Interventions which included greater engagement with family and community members such as their active participation in interventions were particularly effective.
