Subject Area:Social Sciences and Humanities
The commitment of Kenya’s government to achieve Education For All (EFA) goals, and attain gender equality in education, can be threatened by the gender disparities that characterise the education system in favour of boys. The need for constant interventions to enhance girls’ participation in education towards eradicating the disparities is paramount. This study posits that a formal mentoring program can be a suitable intervention and therefore embarked on developing one. This paper discusses the process followed in the development of the program .It also highlights the components, the design and the conceptualised process of the program.
