Alternatives to formal education for marginalised girls
Alternative education is an umbrella term used to describe an array of interventions designed to help children and youth who cannot access, or are struggling to learn in, formal Learning environments. Alternative education can be particularly useful for reaching those who have missed a chunk of schooling, or those in rural areas. This report first looks at the different types of alternative education programmes provided across the Girls’ Education Challenge (GEC). It then takes a closer look at specific alternative education programmes across the GEC and pulls out key learning from five case studies before summarising lessons learned so far.
