About the girls’ schooling programme in Benin

The Government of Benin is implementing the Promoting girls' schooling programme. This programme was piloted between 2005 and 2010 in one of the 12 departments in the country. Following the pilot phase, the government decided to expand the programme by nationally subsidising education for all girls in junior secondary schools.

The decision was not based on a rigorous impact evaluation or concrete results of an impact evaluation of the pilot programme of schooling for girls. The government intends to expand the programme to senior high schools in the second phase. This is an opportunity to undertake a quality impact evaluation study to help decision-making.
