Sisters for Sisters’ Education
Part of the VSO Sisters for Sisters’ Education Project in Nepal, the English and Digital for Girls’ Education (EDGE) programme supports 1,350 adolescent girls through girls’ clubs which had used radio as a key modality. In responding to Covid-19, the project expanded and further developed the radio component which has resulted in much wider engagement and reach. The distance teaching and learning (DTL) approach involves the weekly broadcast of radio and television programmes centred around gender equality, social issues and English language development. Now embedded into the government system, the resource is accessible to to 7.3 million students and 147,000 teachers across Nepal.
