Kigoma Region has one of the highest levels of poverty and lowest levels of educational achievement in the country. Roughly 90% of the population have completed primary school, however, only 8.3% of the entire population of the region have attained secondary education.
The Education theme will provide support to local government authorities to increase their capacity to deliver quality formal and non-formal basic education, as well as vocational training, to adolescent girls.
It also seeks to ensure that adolescent girls have access to both information and support related to sexual reproductive health from a wide range of actors both within government and civil society.
