LISTEN: The inaugural Zero Dropout Action Summit to showcase the findings of a four-year pilot on dropout prevention

Rahima Essop, Head of Communications and Advocacy at the Zero Dropout Campaign, speaks to John Perlam from Radio 702 about the upcoming Zero Dropout Action Summit.

The Zero Dropout Campaign began working with four NGO implementing partners in 2017 to pilot innovative dropout prevention and reintegration strategies in schools. “The aim of the pilot was to develop scalable models of best practice to prevent dropout by learning from the experiences of our implementing partners and the schools they work with,” explains Essop.

The findings of the pilot form part of a series of toolkits to be launched at Action Summit on 28 September.
