Girls Education Advocacy in the Region (GEAR) Alliance was founded in 2020 with four core organizations namely Students And Youth Working on reproductive Health Action Team (SAYWHAT) in Zimbabwe, Farming Communities Educational Trust (FACET) in Zimbabwe, Girls Activist Youth Organization (GAYO) in Malawi and National Action for Quality Education (NAQEZ) in Zambia.


SAYWHAT is the lead applicant in this project while the rest are implementing partners. GEAR alliance project is funded by Education Out Loud (EOL). The overall goal of the coalition is to ensure inclusive and equitable access to quality education by adolescent girls and young women in rural and farming communities in Southern Africa.
