In 2008, FAWE embarked on a new strategic direction to draw closer to making our vision — a world in which all African girls access education, perform well and complete their studies — a reality.
We launched our 2008-2012 Strategic Plan, setting six targeted objectives to enable us to achieve both our mission and our vision through wider adoption and implementation of our successful models for girls’ education at national level across the sub-Saharan Africa region.
Our strategic objectives for 2008-2012 are:
1. To continue influencing the integration of gender issues in education policies and plans in order to improve girls’ access, retention and performance, with special emphasis on partnerships.
2. To continue to replicate FAWE’s gender-responsive interventions in order to scale them up in more countries, while developing new models to address emerging challenges in girls' education.
3. To advocate for girls’ education and gender equity in education at community level.
4. To build the capacity of National Chapters to improve their functionality and their ability to deliver programmes and influence policy.
5. To undertake organisational development in order to ensure the sustainability of the organisation and enhance the effectiveness of its structures and programmes.
6. To institutionalise an effective monitoring and evaluation system across the entire organisation.
The 2008-2012 Strategic Plan is the second since FAWE was founded.
