The Government of Sierra Leone launched Free Quality School Education (FQSE) in 2018 to address decades of underfunding in the education system, which left it with multiple challenges and poor student learning outcomes.
Contracted by UNICEF, CGA designed and led a qualitative study to understand the barriers faced by out of school children across Sierra Leone and to inform strategy and policy that will increase access. This looks particularly at barriers facing the most marginalised children and examines what measures designed to support them are required.
