Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

This week I would like to share an amazing story with you! It is about a project of UNESCO which is focused on gender equity in education.

The UNESCO has created one year ago global partnerships for the education of girls and women which aims to important fields – secondary education and literacy. With partnerships and a stronger advocacy the UNESCO has focused on scaling up such programs. Three of these funded by private partners had made good progress.
For example the Senegalese project with Procter and Gamble states awesome results:

By now approximately 160 cla**** opened in the seven regions covered, and also 100 literacy trainers have been trained to deliver literacy cla**** to about 3000 learners. The project uses traditional face-to-face literacy cla**** as well as the innovative use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to reach a maximum of learners, and include income-generating activities that aim to empower a wh*** community.

There are also successful projects in Ethiopia and Tanzania which working with “a community-based approach to lowering drop-out rates in secondary school. Now there are activities at 13 schools in Ethiopia and further 15 in Tanzania and Zanzibar, aimed to empower girls and keep them in school.

Another success story comes from Kenya: There are two projects called Gender-sensitive training of teachers and school principals for girls’ and women’s access, participation, and advancement in mathematics, science and technology education which are centered at the Kenya Education Management Institute are getting ready for the training of teachers and school principals.

In many African states the school enrolment rates areless than 50 per cent – when it comes to girls the enrollment rates are situated at alarming 13 to 31 per cent. With those UNESCO projects there are foundation stones were laid to a way out of this nuisance.

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
