Summary

The Good School Toolkit (GST) is an intervention to prevent violence against children in schools through addressing the operational culture, by influencing four categories of relationships within schools. Raising Voices are in the process of developing GST Agile, in preparation for scaling the Toolkit across Uganda. This modular, lighter version of the Toolkit aims to deliver the same effectiveness at lower costs – but the right evidence is needed to make those editing decisions (which activities to eliminate, which to strengthen, which pathways to amplify). This implementation research project seeks to answer these questions via the evaluation question ‘Which aspects of the GST are suggestive of being most important for reducing violence against children in schools?’. Through this project Raising Voices in partnership with IDinsight will answer this, and subsidiary research questions, using a process tracing method in 9 case study schools.
