According to bank documents, the project objective is to support the Government of Zambia to increase access to livelihood support for women and access to secondary education for disadvantaged adolescent girls in extremely poor households in selected districts.
The proposed Additional Finance (AF) will scale up the existing components of Girls' Education and Women's Empowerment and Livelihood Project (GEWEL) while deepening their impacts on the human capital of women and girls. Components 1 and 2 of the existing GEWEL Project aim to improve livelihoods and human capital outcomes of women and adolescent girls belonging to the poorest and most vulnerable households in Zambia through the provision of livelihood support (Component 1) and bursaries for adolescent girls (Component 2). The Additional Financing proposes to add a new sub-component under Component 2, which would fund the Social Cash Transfer (SCT) to improve its performance by strengthen its delivery and fiduciary systems and financing the provision of cash transfers.
