Combattre la violence contre les femmes et les filles (VCFF) dans les programmes d’éducation. Note d’orientation du DFID

This two-part guidance note is part of a series of DFID guidance notes on VAWG. It focuses specifically on how to address VAWG in education programming, where DFID aims to make progress towards two key impacts: 1. Girls and boys gain valuable knowledge, skills and self-confidence through education in gender-responsive environments free from all forms of violence or threat of violence; 2. Education systems, through formal and informal settings, actively contribute to the development of more gender-equitable societies, where VAWG is not tolerated. Part A sets out the strategic rationale and broad approach to addressing VAWG in education programming and covers the following: Rationale for education programmes to address VAWG; Addressing VAWG through education programmes: the challenges; DFID’s vision and key outcome areas to address VAWG through education programming; Principles to guide education programming related to VAWG; Calculating Value for Money (VfM) of VAWG interventions. Part B provides specific guidance on designing programmes for each key outcome area: Outcome-specific challenges; Developing an engagement strategy – which sets out specific questions to be analysed in order to decide where and how to intervene; Options for intervention; Case studies of promising practices and lessons learned; Mini theories of change for each outcome; Examples of indicators.
