Dubai Cares’ RAISE program supports adolescent girls and boys from poor rural households who dropped out of school or are at risk of dropping out in two of the country’s poorest provinces – Masbate and North Samar. The program employs a dual strategy of a) reducing barriers (including household poverty, gender discrimination and labor-related constraints) and b) building key social, personal and material assets for adolescents, especially girls through quality formal and alternative education opportunities. The RAISE Program provides a unique opportunity to evaluate innovative, holistic and alternative education models that ensure children and adolescents, especially girls, have the appropriate skills and assets required to reach their social, personal and financial aspirations.

Program activities include:
• Improving access to primary education for children at risk of dropping out, especially girls (10-12 years old)
• Improving access to secondary school for more marginalized adolescents (13-19 years old), especially girls
• Ensuring that marginalized adolescents (12-19 years old), especially girls, develop improved social, personal and financial assets
