Teaching for improved gender equality and responsiveness means that teachers and school leaders are aware of gender challenges in the education system and are equipped to overcome and/or counter those challenges, as well as to create a (more) gender aware climate in their classrooms and schools. Gender-responsive teachers and school leaders provide all learners the opportunity to develop their own talents, irrespective of gender stereotypes.


To develop and or strengthen teachers’ and school leaders’ understanding of gender responsiveness and to provide tools and strategies to establish a gender responsive school climate, the TIGER project developed an Action Guide on gender-responsive education. To amplify the messages from the Action Guide on the elimination of school-related gender-based violence, the project developed Information, Education and Communication (IEC) materials for different target groups: 3 posters for teachers and school leaders, 2 booklets for children and 3 brochures for parents.
