Sebê Nón - "our knowledge" - seeks to prevent school dropout among São Tomé e Príncipe female population and raise awareness of gender equality importance through support for school activities and extracurricular activities for female empowerment.
In terms of education, as the level of education increases it can be seen that gender differences widen. This inequality - where women are most disadvantaged - is then visible in the professional qualification for better jobs, economic independence and participation in public life.
Sebê Nón's goals are to prevent the school dropout of the female population and to raise awareness about gender equality by supporting the study and the realization of extracurricular activities whose themes and methodologies contribute to female empowerment.
The project will be implemented on the island of São Tomé for 12 months, in line with the national school year, in particular with girls attending the 7th, 8th and 9th grades at Guadalupe Secondary School in order to cover the populations of the communities of Guadalupe and Agostinho Neto.
