Educate Girls End Poverty (EGEP)

For Social Impact this week, we’ve got an update on the Educate Girls End Poverty program (EGEP). This program was implemented by Relief International in Somalia from 2014-2017, and is included within the Department for International Development, Girls’ Education Challenge. This program has a goal to increase the participation of young girls in anything relating to education. They strive to see higher learning scores, enrollment, even just attendance in young girls. Currently, Somalia has an attendance rate of only 23 percent in schools. EGEP is working hard by creating and providing a holistic package of education-targeted interventions.

The kits include sanitary kits, latrines, solar lamps, as well as results for teaching training and school feeding programs. These have provided a positive impact thus far.
