In September 2017, Jimat Development Consultants was awarded a contract by World Vision UK to carry out a Baseline Evaluation of the GEC IGATE-T Project in Zimbabwe. The Improving Gender Attitudes, Transition and Education outcomes (IGATE-T) project aims to improve the life chances of 73,492 marginalised girls by supporting them to transition to further education beyond primary school. The project is operating in a total of 320 schools, reached through the clustered delivery of the whole school development component and community engagement and in complementary community-based learning programmes for out of school girls. The project works in nine of the most vulnerable districts in the country: Binga, Lupane, Nkayi, Mangwe, Beitbridge, Insiza, Chivi, Mberengwa, Gokwe South located throughout the four provinces of Matabeleland North, Matabeleland South, Midlands, and Masvingo. Jimat Development Consultants conducted data collection in 75 schools with a sample size of 4200 girls. The survey also included out of school girls and boys.
