Alitus Femina is working to reduce Sexually Transmitted Grades (STGs) – sex in exchange for positive grades – a practice that adversely impacts women’s and girls’ education in discriminatory and harmful ways. This testing project will conduct a series of longitudinal, inclusive, and gender-sensitive pilot tests to develop a locally adapted and effective strategy for addressing the problem of STGs and create a reliable and secure database of evidence. Establishing a comprehensive database will play a key role in facilitating an environment of exchange among stakeholders to better formalize monitoring practices and inform public policy decisions that seek to address the problem of STGs.
