Technical and vocational education and training (TVET)
In order to address the challenges related to girls’ education in post-conflict situations, we have initiated an intervention to empower girls through technical and vocational education and training (TVET) in Burundi, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
The project seeks not only to train out-of-school girls, including in careers traditionally reserved for males, but to equip teachers with gender-responsive pedagogy skills and to influence the integration of gender issues into TVET policies and plans in each of the countries.
FAWE also creates opportunities for out-of-school girls and unemployed women through TVET in Burkina Faso, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Uganda. This training allows them to establish income-generating activities and improve their life chances.
