RESEARCH OBJECTIVESi
The overall objective of the research is to provide insight into the challenges and
factors that enable and at times undermine girls’ learning in upper primary and

retention, transition and learning. Using qualitative and quantitative evidence and
insights, the research will aim to identify and understand the enablers and barriers to
girls’ education, the root causes and norms that underpin these barriers, and the needs
and opportunities to overcome them. The research should examine current levels/rates
of transition for girls from upper primary to junior secondary schools, as well as their
attendance levels, learning outcomes and completion rates. This research will also
assess the status of non-formal education and its potential to offer transition pathways
for primary school completers who miss out on secondary education. More

influence and inform girls’ attendance, learning outcomes, completion of upper
primary and transition to secondary schools.
 Identify opportunities for reducing harmful practices and gender-based
violence, transforming discriminatory social and gender norms, empowering
girls and advancing their transitions to secondary schools, such as the
relationship between girls’ education and sexual and reproductive health and
rights (SRHR)
