Under each design element are sub-purposes and accompanying activities that are meant to achieve sub-purpose goals but also to contribute to cross-purpose outcomes, as part of the desired integration strategy.

The Partners for Learning (P4L) project is implemented by CARE in collaboration with 20 partner organizations and 465 schools since November 2013. P4L’s goal is to identify, enroll, and retain 50,000 out-of-school girls and boys (OOSGB) in the Haitian education system. After three years of implementation, this midline evaluation was conducted to assess the prevalence of OOSGB in targeted areas, given contextual changes such as the destruction caused by Hurricane Matthew; analyze the contribution of P4L training activities on teaching practices; and assess the validity of P4L’s strategies.

The recommendations from the midline are:
- Increase mobilization efforts to identify and enroll OOSGB in areas of high out-of-school prevalence;
- Need to reinforce the project strategy to strengthen retention, as dropout remains a major issue in targeted areas;
- Mobilize other actors in the education sector (MENFP, NGOs through CEC, civil society associations, etc.) to design a national strategy to address retention issues;
- Promote VSLA in each area to support families to enroll and keep their children in school;
- Mobilize funds and create partnerships to improve infrastructure conditions in partner
schools. [39 pages]
