Launched in Dakar, Senegal, in 2000 by then United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan, the United Nations Girls’ Education Initiative (UNGEI) promotes girls’ education and works for gender equality in education through a network of partners at the global, regional, national and sub-national levels. This report is an overview of the current state of girls’ education and gender equality. It includes a summary of UNGEI activities and functions, a review of remaining challenges and a sketch of the future direction of UNGEI. The report documents UNGEI’s activities over the last 10 years and its value-added function in advancing the Millennium Development Goals as they relate to gender, education, poverty reduction and the Education for All goals.
