UNGEI Fund for Documentation of Good Practice: Announcing the Successful Recipients for 2014-2015

New York, 21 August 2014 - Last year, UNGEI launched a call for proposals for the UNGEI Fund for Documentation of Good Practice in Girls’ Education and Gender Equality (UNGEI Good Practice Fund). This catalytic fund is designed to strengthen the evidence base through the 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.

The Good Practice Fund is part of UNGEI’s larger knowledge management strategy to strengthen a collective understanding of effective programming for girls’ education across different social and economic geographies and foster greater connectivity between individuals and organizations working in the field of girls’ education and gender equality.

We received over 300 applications across the globe, with good practices ranging 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.

After a rigorous 3-tier review process by a team of gender and education experts – comprising of members UNGEI Secretariat, UNGEI Global Advisory Committee members, and UNICEF colleagues working on innovations and knowledge management – we would like to congratulate the 17 successful recipients listed below who will receive the grant for 2014-15.

In addition, we would also like to extend our sincere gratitude to all the organizations and individuals for their submissions and hope you will continue the great work in girls’ education and gender equality.

We would also like to thank the review panel members for their support and commitment to see the selection process and initiative through.

Moving forward, the UNGEI Secretariat will work closely with the successful organizations during 2014-15 to complete the documentation process. A dedicated space to showcase these and other good practices in girls’ education will be created on the UNGEI website. Please stay tuned!
