UNGEI Call for Proposals: Fund for Documentation of Good Practice in Girls' Education and Gender Equality

The United Nations Girls’ Education Initiative (UNGEI) is a multi-stakeholder partnership committed to improving the quality and availability of girls’ education and contributing to the empowerment of girls through transformative education. UNGEI, as a designated flagship of Education for All (EFA), strives to support governments and the international community to deliver on the gender-related EFA goals and education related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) on achieving universal primary education and gender parity in primary and secondary education. With the 2015 deadline to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) fast approaching, UNGEI firmly believes that the immediate education priority should be a focus on all girls learning and achieving.

One of UNGEI’s priorities for action is the identification of evidence based solutions and the sharing of good practice in promoting girls’ education and gender equality as part of its larger knowledge management function. UNGEI aims to act as a knowledge broker to strengthen a collective understanding of effective programming for girls’ education; and provide partners and stakeholders with access to tools and good practices, and foster greater connectivity between individuals and organizations working in the field of girls’ education and gender equality. UNGEI is committed to support regional and national partnerships to identify, document, share and promote good practice.

The proposed UNGEI Fund for Documentation of Good Practice Case Studies in Girls’ Education and Gender Equality (UNGEI Good Practice Fund) is designed as a catalytic fund to strengthen the evidence base through identification of good practice at the regional and country level. It aims to document a range of proven and promising interventions that have increased educational options and opportunities for girls. These may range from increasing access to educational opportunities to those relating to gender responsive teaching and learning approaches, improved gender relations in schools and education systems, and enhanced girls’ learning and achievement, including non-cognitive measures relating to self-esteem and leadership.
