Somali Girls Education Promotion Project Transition (SOMGEP-T)

Kobcinta Waxbarashada Gabdhaha


The DFID Funded Somali Girls Education Promotion Transition (SOMGEP-T) project is part of the overall program of CARE Somalia focusing on vulnerable rural women.

The Project – Kobcinta Waxbarashada Gabdhaha in Somali project aimed at increasing access to education, improve learning outcomes, retention and transition of girls from some of the poorest, most vulnerable and marginalized households in remote and rural areas of Somaliland, Puntland and Galmudug.

Objective of the TOR

SOMGEP-T’s intervention focuses on boosting teaching/learning and improving the overall learning achievements for the marginalized and vulnerable girls in the remote and rural communities in Somaliland, Puntland and Galmudug. The project is working on enhancing teachers’ skills in English language by addressing specific gaps identified including teaching English language as a subject and teaching in English as a medium of instruction (second language) in primary schools and secondary schools. The project targets to support marginalized girls to acquire strong foundational skills in literacy and fluency in English language to enable them participate favorably in secondary education or post primary institutions.

SOMGEP-T aims at improving learning achievement for girls enrolled in primary and secondary schools in the rural communities. Responding to the gaps identified during the first phase of the project, SOMGEP-T intends to enhance the teachers’ skills in English language. Teachers will be supported through training to improve teachers’ capacity to teach English as a subject and teaching in English which is the medium of instruction for upper primary and secondary school curricular.
