Description of Scale and Reach
Beginning in 1997 and prior to the Discovery Project, DLA had worked in 13 countries and with almost 500 schools, which included training 18 thousand teachers, establishing nearly 500 dynamic media resource centers, supporting community mobilization, and reaching almost 1.3 million students. From 2014-2016, and as part of the Girls Education Challenge supported Discovery Project, DLA successfully scaled to reach an additional 1420 primary schools, representing a 300% increase in reach in just three years. In this initial phase of the project, DLA trained more than 12,000 teachers, helped establish nearly 1200 girls' associations in local school communities, and reached approximately 900 thousand more children. As part of this scaling process, community mobilization efforts expanded to include establishing girls' associations and youth clubs; the DLA media library expanded and added 83 new educational video segments; teacher training workshop topics expanded, with DLA's work concentrating in Nigeria, Kenya and Ghana.
