This will be achieved through participatory school and latrine construction, solar panel installation, leadership development, and community mobilization. Parent leaders will be trained formally across 481 past and 520 future project sites to help the identification and enrolment of OOSC. This initiative will not only provide sustainable learning environments for more than 43,056 OOSC and 117,264 children at risk of dropping out, but will allow parents to take an active role in improving education for their children. The project also includes annual training for local parent leaders to galvanize community commitment to education.
Long-term sustainability is intended for every school that is built. As part of the strategy to create true partnerships with the communities, the partnership aims to prepare and support communities in maintaining their schools, both in terms of the physical structure and their ability to conduct classes for children and adults. The schools that they help build and the parents they help train will continue to provide more educational opportunity for OOSC and children at risk of not enrolling or dropping out of primary school for decades to come.
