The working papers presented in this volume shed light on the often silent crises that affect girls’ participation, education and learning. Importantly, the papers offer solutions and policy recommendations that are grounded in local knowledge and insights from the perspectives of the Echidna Scholars. They serve as critical contributions that build on achievements in gender parity in West Africa, Nigeria and Malawi, yet they hold governments and other actors accountable to a broader vision of gender equality. The papers presented here show the potential for policy solutions when local leaders’ voices are heard at global level.
