dc.description.abstractThis helpdesk provides a rapid review of the evidence on the outcomes and delivery of girls’ clubs in educational programmes. The review found some evidence of girls’ clubs specific programmes in school settings having positive impacts on educational and life skills outcomes. Girls clubs delivered as part of education programmes can have positive impacts on literacy, numeracy, enrolment and attendance. Although the evidence is limited.Clubs delivered in schools which combine the delivery of life skills training with sports also show promising impact on education. Evaluation of one of such programmes showed that participation had increased their determination to complete their education and girls were more able to express ambition. However, not all the evaluations of girls’ club found for this review showed positive outcomes – for example one evaluation found no impact on school enrolment or other empowerment outcomes.en
