Impact evaluation of UNICEF Nigeria Girls’ Education project phase 3 (GEP3) Cash Transfer Programme
Evaluability assessment report
The Girls’ Education Project was initiated through a Memorandum of Understanding signed in December 2004 between the United Nations Children’s Fund and the United Kingdom Department for International Development. The Girls’ Education Project Memorandum of Understanding focused on supporting Federal Government of Nigeria initiatives that aim at achieving Universal Primary Education and Universal Basic Education as stipulated in the six Education for All goals.
The Girls’ Education Project 3 Cash Transfer Programme was designed as a social protection programme for mitigating the impact of poverty on girl child enrolment and school attendance in Niger and Sokoto States. The programme was implemented for two years (2014 to 2016).
UNICEF has commissioned Capra International to assess the programme against five criteria in order to better understand how the programme was implemented, the impacts achieved, and identify lessons that can inform further implementation of the Cash Transfer Programme.
