Transforming Girls' Education in Nigeria and Tanzania
£235,330, Comic Relief Introduction TEGINT is a 5 year project being implemented across eight states in Northern Nigeria and six districts in Northern Tanzania. TEGINT intends to 'achieve a transformation in the education of girls in Tanzania and Nigeria, enabling them to enrol and succeed in school by addressing key challenges and obstacles that hinder their participation in education and increase their vulnerability to HIV/AIDS'. A 'transformation' however, is not possible without understanding and challenging underlying gender inequalities; power relations, and the ascribed roles of females and males. National NGOs in Tanzania (Maarifa ni Ufunguo) and Nigeria (CAPP) work with schools and communities and undertake national advocacy to achieve the project objectives. The project also works in partnership with national research institutes to build up robust evidence in which to inform policy and practice in the project and more widely. Summary IOE provides technical and coordination support on the research and monitoring and evaluation of the project. This has included working with national research institutes and other project partners to conceptualise and design comprehensive baseline studies across the two project areas, and conduct data analysis and production of national baseline reports. We have also developed a cross-country analysis of the study findings, published in September 2011. Download: 'TEGINT: A cross-country analysis of baseline research from Nigeria and Tanzania' (pdf). IOE coordinated the development of a Monitoring and Evaluation framework for the project. This supports data gathering and periodic evaluation by implementing partners across the course of the project to assess effectiveness of project processes and progress towards outcomes. We are connecting the project to international research audiences and supporting partners in developing papers for conferences and publication in order that learning from the project is widely shared and has influence beyond the project states and districts in which it works. The next phase of research that has recently begun is conducting in depth qualitative studies in the project areas. In Tanzania this looks more closely at the role of women on the School Management Committees in improving education for girls. In Nigeria the relationship between girls' early drop out from school, early marriage, violence, and school levies charged is being examined through in depth family case studies. IOE will coordinate an endline study in the final year of the project. Through the tasks above we provide technical support and support capacity development on carrying out high quality gender-sensitive research with all partners in the project.
