LEAD Program; (Leadership, Education, Access and Discovery)

The solution is built to help secondary school learners in processing and acquiring core competencies of life skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, self-awareness among others including values like respect, integrity using social emotional learning framework. The program is based on a holistic development model that realizes the need to involve teachers and the community in supporting girls’ development. The program rests on the belief that through regular, positive interaction we can help girls to become leaders, be excellent students, gain access to knowledge and resources, and discover more about themselves and the world.

Community & Parental engagement program

Covid-19 and closure of schools have affected children’s learning outcomes especially in rural communities. This has proven that parents and communities have major roles in the learning of children and improving education system. FICH addresses the root of this problem by engaging parents and strengthening community education structures to support the learning of children aged 6-12 and 13-19 in rural communities and schools.

FICH engages with key stakeholders such as Chairpersons Local Council 1, Village Education Committees, organized community groups, older youth in the community and retired teachers to support the learning of children.
