Our 2002-2006 Strategic Plan took inspiration from the Dakar Framework for Action which committed governments to achieving quality basic education for all by 2015, with particular emphasis on girls’ schooling. Our aim was to contribute to reaching the goal of gender parity in basic education by 2005.
The 2002-2006 Plan was centred on the following objectives:
1. Influencing policy formulation, planning and implementation in favour of increasing girls’ access, retention and performance of girls in schools.
2. Building public awareness and consensus on the social and economic advantages of girls’ education through advocacy.
3. Demonstrating, through interventions on the ground, how to achieve increased access, improved retention and better performance by girls.
4. Influencing replication of our interventions and mainstreaming of successful interventions into broader national education policies and plans.
