NIKHALAMO – Girls Stay in School

NIKHALAMO is a four-year project officially launched in 2014 by ADPP in partnership with Girl Child Rights in Namacurra District, Zambezia Province. Its aim is to improve school retention and completion rates of the last grades of primary education and to ensure the transition of vulnerable girls to secondary school education.

 

The project operates in 18 primary schools and 3 secondary schools reaching an estimated 20,000 community members. During 2018, 805 vulnerable girls were supported through the Community Block Grant to move from primary to secondary school.

 

Donations were also used to buy school uniforms and sanitary towels for vulnerable girls which contributed to retention and increased school attendance.

 

The project revitalized 21 reading circles and established 5 new primary schools as a way to improve students’ academic performance. 200 Girl Mentors provided guidance and psychosocial support to vulnerable girls, enabling them to address various issues, such as adolescence, orphanhood, and sexual abuse.
