UNGEI Policy Advocacy Agenda: All Girls Achieving and Learning
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 and women through transformative education. It is founded on an understanding that all girls have the right to learn in a safe and supportive learning environment.
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). Our partners unite under the UNGEI umbrella with the belief that a collaborative advantage can be gained through collective efforts.
In order to maximize efforts which are the most needed and which will have the highest impact on girls’ education around the world, UNGEI is focusing policy advocacy efforts on four key strategic priorities which are outlined further in this document:
- An enhanced focus on marginalized and excluded groups;
- The reduction/elimination of school-related gender-based violence;
- Improved learning outcomes for girls; and
- An increased number of girls transitioning to secondary education and accessing post-primary opportunities.
