EiE-GenKit Virtual Launch
In the lead up to the International Women’s Day 2021, 8 March 2021, ECW, INEE and UNGEI, three partner organisations working for gender equality in education in emergencies, are joining forces to launch a toolkit promoting gender-responsive and inclusive education interventions in emergency and protracted crises settings: the EiE-GenKit.
The event will start with a short film providing an overview of the rationale behind developing the EiE-GenKit, its contents and usage, and its relevance in the current COVID-19 climate. An intergenerational panel discussion will follow, featuring representatives from UNICEF, Plan Canada, Compact for Young People in Humanitarian Action, and the Generation Equality Youth Task Force.
In a time where the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated existing gender and education inequalities, particularly affecting adolescent girls, the EiE-GenKit is a global good to improve gender-responsiveness and inclusivity in EiE interventions.
