Girls and females do take priority impacted by Covid. Following the outbreak of the pandemic, schools were shut down and students remain at home. Researches indication girls and young women are the first to be removed from school and the last to return. In Ethiopia, schools had been opened months. The system is totally different compare to before Covid. Although students back to school, most girls couldn't make it, even those who were able to back are not consistent attendants. The lesson delivery schedule at school is changed to minimize the risk of transmission of the pandemic. The classes are given every other day, therefore, the time allocated to the lessons is reduced by half. Due to this and other reasons, students in general girls, in particular, are negatively affected.
To mitigate the problem and make the girls attend the school attentively, a new program was designed and implemented in collaboration with local schools. Among the activities incorporated in the program, providing extra classes and inspirational sessions, students are given training that enables them to enhance their interest and effectiveness in their education, sensitization workshops to students' parents and caregivers are the major ones. students who will sit for the national exams also have been trained on effective study skills and how to manage their emotions pre, during, and post-exams. So far we have reached 125 girls in different grade levels.
we are grateful for all the kind support that enables us to motivate school girls to remain focus on their education.
