Girls Randomized Controlled Trial
In January 2015, we initiated a Randomized control trial in girls’ primary and secondary schools, class 5-8 and Form 1 to Form 4 in Lilongwe and Dedza Districts. We are in the process of monitoring this group and will follow them up in late 2015 to assess the impact of our IMpower intervention. We will submit the results of this study at the end of 2015.
In May 2015, we started the same kind of study mentioned above in Salima and Mzimba where we’ve already collected the baseline data. We will be following up this group next year, 2016, May. We will begin another RCT Study in Mangochi and NkhataBay come September, 2016. We’re studying the effect of our program to sexual assault, early marriage and pregnancy related school drop-out in all the 6 Districts.
