The Ministry of Education and Sports (MoES) in collaboration with Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and Development Partners have put in place initiatives/interventions and policies that emphasize equal opportunities for both boys and girls. These include Universal Primary Education (UPE), Universal Secondary Education (USE); Universal Post O-level Education and Training (UPOLET), and sensitization campaigns to support education for girls. Gender inequality in education however remains a challenge.
This briefing paper explores the persistent challenges that limit the gender mainstreaming efforts.
