With funding from the LNGB Window, WUSC seeks to procure a research and consulting firm to conduct a feasibility study to better understand the demographics, catchment area, needs and challenges of orphaned and unattended or marginalized girls in Afghanistan, including those with disabilities, particularly with respect to having access to and receiving a quality education. A secondary focus of this study will be to include an estimate of the prevalence of out of school girls, in selected provinces, in alignment with the LNGB Level 3 marginalisation criteria [See attached LNGB definition document]. This includes girls facing multiple forms of discrimination that are at high risk of dropping out of school / have dropped out of school and are unlikely to transition forward in their education, skills development or employment without intensive support. The results of this study will assist the Government of Afghanistan and DFID to develop a program to support these marginalised girls.
