TE members have carved their spaces and planted their roots in their home countries, advocating for education transformation for a sustainable future that is built on gender equality. Our members are leading organisations who are engaging in groundbreaking work within their communities. This year, TE has grown by 60 members, working across our 7 key thematic areas: STEM, Comprehensive Sexuality Education, Gender Norms, Feminist leadership in Education, Girls’ Education in Emergencies, Climate Justice and Climate Education, and School-Related Gender-Based Violence.
Notably, some of our members launched resources, hosted conferences, and led projects to continue their advocacy:

Resources we loved in 2022
We are pleased to share the publications and resources that we have either created, contributed, or absolutely loved in 2022! These resources aim to challenge the way we as activists approach intergenerational partnerships, how we advocate for ourselves and communities, and the ways in which we can improve our activism to ensure that it is inclusive and feminist!

A Look Ahead
We are entirely grateful for the brilliance, vision, and commitment of our members, funders, supporters, and allies in going above and beyond to create sustainable and inclusive futures. In 2023, we aim to meaningfully amplify and provide platforms for all TE members to showcase their work and key learnings. We will continue to collaborate with feminist grassroots organisations and agencies who share the same ideals and principles. We want to ensure that we continue data-driven advocacy, co-creating frameworks, and research with all of our members and supporters to further bolster our advocacy for Gender Transformative Education.
Thank you for your hard work and continued support. Let’s smash the patriarchy!
2023 is a year of magic, what are you conjuring for the new year?
