Over 15 organisations including DFID, USAID, World Bank, UNICEF and Plan signed a Statement of Action which focuses on what the Global Goals mean for girls’ education, and the specific actions needed to improve education outcomes for marginalised girls.

Global Partnership For Education’s Julia Gillard was in full support of DFID and forum partners’ commitments stating, “When we educate girls, we see reduced child deaths, healthier children and mothers, fewer child marriages and faster economic growth. I congratulate Secretary of State Justine Greening on today’s announcement and her pivotal leadership on girls’ education.”
