Post primary school mentorship improves performance: survey

What you need to know:

  • In the study, those involved offered educational supports to selected girls enrolled in low-cost informal private schools in the two slums where APHRC has been working for the last 15 years.
  • The life-skills training was offered one hour per week for the first six weeks to build and solidify relationships, then reduced to one hour per month for the rest of the three year study period.
