Adolescent Girls’ Education in Crisis Initiative (AGENCI)

The goal of the AGENCI program is to enhance the empowerment of adolescent girls and female youth pursuing educational pathways in crisis-affected areas. The project is implemented in South Sudan by WUSC, in collaboration with Windle International, CGA Technologies, and Curriculum Foundation.

Country/Region: South Sudan
Dates/Duration: 2020 - Ongoing
Funded by: GAC
Clients: WUSC

CGA is responsible for leading:
• Delivering financial assistance to the most marginalised households to enable their adolescent girls and female youth to pursue educational opportunities
• The curation of tailored, context-appropriate software aligned with national curriculum
• Delivering training and mentoring to school leaders, SMC chairs and relevant government education officials and leaders on use of data collection apps, understanding data, and how it informs practice
• Providing on-going support to users of data collection apps SSSAMS
• Piloting new programs at secondary level to open up opportunities for adolescent girls and female youth to access university


Working closely with the Ministry of General Education and Instruction, AGENCI will improve education opportunities and outcomes for approximately 150,000 South Sudanese girls and boys through a combination of scholarships, teacher coaching, and community mobilization activities.

SAMS reports around 10,000 teachers who have already engaged directly with SAMS by SMS, and they are the first priority for targeting, using digital curriculum solutions from the Curriculum Foundation.
