This project is providing a pathway for rural women in Malawi into teaching through providing Learning Assistant roles in local schools and supporting women to re-take secondary school exams.
Keeping Girls in School is a major programme funded by the UK Department for International Development (DfID). Between 2013 and 2016 TESSA in collaboration with FAWEMA (Forum for African Women Educationalists in Malawi) is embarking on a project which is part of the KGIS programme.
