Overview: This conceptual framework and toolkit for measuring SRGBV has been commissioned by the U.S. Agency for International Development’s (USAID’s) Bureau for Africa, Office of Sustainable Development, Education Division (AFR/SD/ED), under the Opportunities for Achievement and Safety in Schools (OASIS) program. In support of the USAID Education Strategy, the Office of Sustainable Development’s Regional Development Cooperation Strategy (RDCS), and the United States Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Gender-Based Violence. Globally, the OASIS program aims to contribute to reducing barriers to quality education and learning for students and out-of-school youth, focusing on school-related gender-based violence (SRGBV) as one such barrier. The OASIS program is designed to strengthen the capacity of USAID and other stakeholders to effectively address SRGBV by generating evidence, fostering better capability to generate such evidence, improving coordination, and increasing awareness. This conceptual framework and toolkit for measuring SRGBV is a contribution to the second objective of OASIS: strengthening the capacity of USAID and other stakeholders to address and monitor SRGBV. Through the use of the conceptual framework and toolkit’s companion piece titled Literature Review on School-Related Gender-Based Violence: How it is Defined and Studied, the toolkit is expected to significantly help to build capacity in the international development community to measure SRGBV and track success in reducing it. iv Conceptual Framework for Measuring School-Related Gender-Based Violence Together, activities under the OASIS program will inform and promote programs for a safe learning environment that is free of violence and abuse—an “oasis” for working, teaching, and learning without fear.

    This document has been extremely helpful in our development of the SLE Qualitative Assessment Toolkit – and will also be relied upon as we work on the SLE Quantitative Tool. Thanks for this great work!
