Using Conditional Cash Transfers to Improve Education Status of Girls: Learning brief

Adolescent girls in Kenya face a number of risks and vulnerabilities that can affect their health, education status, and general well-being. The Adolescent Girls Initiative-Kenya (AGI-K) is currently delivering multi-sectoral interventions, targeting violence prevention, education, health, and wealth creation to adolescent girls aged 11 to 15 in two marginalized areas of Kenya.

This learning brief is one of three, prepared during the implementation phase of the project, focusing on key areas of best practices and lessons learn. These briefs aim to share learning with specialists and civil society networks, and help inform future design and management of adolescent girls’ programmes in hard-to-reach, marginalized communities.

To contribute to improved education outcomes among adolescent girls, the AGI-K project design included conditional cash transfers (CCT) where girls are supported to attend school and transition to the next grade upon meeting two conditions i.e. enrolling in school and attaining 80% school attendance. This learning brief presents the findings of implementing CCTs, which are intended to feed into future programme development and implementation.
