This study area was selected because it is one ofthe coordinating centers ofABEK in the district. The methods used for data collection included self administered questionnaires, personal interviews, focused group discussions and the tolls used in the study included open and closed embedded quarries and documentary records. The subjects in this study were the facilitators and ABEK stake holders. The results of the study revealed that ABEK had a considerable contribution to the improvement of girl child education in Rupa Sub County, Moroto district.
