Our Work to Educate Girls
Our work in education includes:
- ensuring girls and boys have free and equal access to education, including during emergencies
- working with governments to provide safe, inclusive school environments, a relevant curriculum, and qualified and motivated teachers
- giving children and parents a voice in school governance so that their concerns are addressed, and ensuring that school managers and governments are held accountable for providing good quality education
- actively targeting children who have never been to school or who have dropped out and offering them the chance of an education.
The Chance to Be a Child Again
“I love being at school – then I can play during break”, says Jenny, aged 7. She has a lot of responsibility at home for such a young girl, but the school day gives her the chance to be a child.
Educating girls on their Rights
We’re helping children, particularly girls, to understand their rights through education. We work with schools, teachers, community leaders, and young people to change attitudes to harmful gender stereotypes and practices like FGM and child marriage.
