  1. I am based in Uganda, Makerere University. There is high drop-out of girls in primary and secondary education (girls from 10 years to 16 years). This has high impact on social, legal and economic welfare of the female. I want to take a study in this area to find out why so. And through a sort of Participatory action research, come out with possible solutions, test it in a longitudinal study. This would end up in many publications and briefs for policy makers. I am looking for collaborators who can source out funding and we undertake this study together.
