In 2011 Child to Child initiated a pilot project ‘A participatory action-based approach to empower and integrate marginalised pupils’ in South London, which involved a series of weekly child-to-child activities for refugee and asylum-seeking children. This evaluation report shows that the project outcomes have been achieved; pupils have improved their language, communication and life skills, along with their engagement with the school and community.

UNGEI Case Study: Child Centred Education through Radio Project in Sierra Leone

by Child to Child - Thursday, 8 October 2020, 6:51 PM
 

The Pikin to Pikin Tok education through radio project has been recognised by the UN Girls Education Initiative (UNGEI) for its transformative impact on girls’ education, and the way in which gender issues are addressed in communities in post-Ebola Sierra Leone.

This case study was commissioned to document how effectively radio was used as a means to deliver:

  • early years and life skills educational content
  • psychosocial support to address the range of issues affecting children and young people impacted by Ebola.

The study was conducted by researchers from the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), Pikin to Pikin Movement and Child to Child. Findings include powerful examples of how messages on issues from teen pregnancy to hand-washing were relayed and retained, and how learning from the Story Time and Under the Mango Tree programmes was linked to the real lives of children.
