The specific objectives of the proposed action are to “increase inclusive access to quality education and learning for marginalized girls and CwDs in the COVID and post-COVID context”, “enhance local authorities’ accountability for resilient and gender-responsive education governance”, and “improve civil society influence and engagement in promoting rights to education and advocating for resilient and gender-responsive education governance”. The achievement of these specific objectives will contribute to the overall objective of “Inclusive quality education for marginalized girls and CwDs through resilient, gender-responsive education governance enhanced by CSO engagement.”. The action proposes to bring about these positive changes by working towards four interrelated intermediary outcomes: 1) Increase literacy, numeracy and life skills for marginalised girls and CwDs in Bara and Rautahat; 2) Promote school-centred civic engagement in two districts of Province 2 with marginalized communities collaborating to minimize educational barriers; 3) Enhance palika capacities in engagement in four districts of Province 2 on DRR, resilience, governance, inclusive education and data; 4) Strengthen CSO capacity to contribute to good governance in education, advocacy, and DRR.
