Promoting girls’ education

EIC works with communities, Governments and partners to remove barriers to girls’ education and promote gender equality in education – even in the most challenging settings.
Because investing in girls’ secondary education is one of the most transformative development strategies, we prioritize efforts that enable all girls to complete secondary education and develop the knowledge and skills they need for life and work.
This will only be achieved when the most disadvantaged girls are supported to enter and complete pre-primary and primary education. Our work:
Tackles discriminatory gender norms and harmful practices that deny girls access to school and quality learning.
Supports Governments to ensure that budgets are gender-responsive and that national education plans and policies prioritize gender equality.
Helps schools and Governments use assessment data to eliminate gender gaps in learning.
Promotes social protection measures, including cash transfers, to improve girls’ transition to and retention in secondary school.
Focuses teacher training and professional development on gender-responsive pedagogies.
Removes gender stereotypes from learning materials.
Addresses other obstacles, like distance-related barriers to education, re-entry policies for young mothers, and menstrual hygiene management in schools.
