Independent Evaluation of the Girls’ Education Challenge Phase II – Evaluation Study 4: Educating Girls with Disabilities in GEC II Final Report


The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) launched the Girls’ Education Challenge (GEC) in 2012. Phase II of the programme (2017-2025) receives £500m to support 41 projects operating in 17 countries, managed through two windows: (1) the GEC Transitions (GEC-T) window; and (2) the Leave No Girl Behind (LNGB) window. The two expected outcomes of the GEC II are: • Improved learning outcomes for marginalised girls; and • Increased transition through key stages of education, training, or employment. The Independent Evaluation (IE) of Phase II of the GEC was commissioned by the FCDO in February 2020.

The IE team is required to deliver eight individual research and evaluation studies on different thematic topics that are considered of high learning value to the FCDO, Fund Manager (FM) and Implementing Partners (IPs). This study is the fourth in the series of the Independent Evaluation of the GEC II and has a thematic focus on Disability within the GEC II.
