dc.description.abstractRetention and academic success are issues of concern in education across the world. They are particularly concerning in the context of ensuring student diversity and extending the participation of disadvantaged groups (Crosling et al., 2009). The Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report (Global Education Monitoring Report Team, 2023) shows that progress has been made in completion rates worldwide, with 87 per cent and 59 per cent of children completing primary and secondary school, respectively. The Educational Attainment Gender Gap is currently 5 per cent in favour of boys and is expected to close in the next 16 years (World Economic Forum, 2023). However, wide gender gaps persist, particularly in and Asian and Sub-Saharan African countries. Pakistan is ranked No. 142 out of 146 countries for this indicator. With support from the Commonwealth of Learning (COL), under the GIRLS Inspire initiative, two partner organisations were supported from 2016 to implement interventions to increase retention in secondary school, help girls who had dropped out of school return to school and support students who had previously dropped out to stay in school. This report assesses the impact of these interventions.
