Leave no girl behind

A new wave of activism for girls’ education

Accelerating action for 12 years of quality education for all girls everywhere

Leave No Girl Behind is a global campaign bringing together a broad coalition of individuals and organizations calling for the world to deliver on its promise of 12 years of quality education for all. We’re working to drive increased investment, build political will, and champion proven approaches in order to break down the barriers for the most marginalized in education: girls.

Breaking Barriers to Leave No Girl Behind

A global call to action

In this joint statement the governments of Canada, the UK, France, Niger, Kenya and Jordan together with seven multilateral and civil society organizations set out 11 resolutions to ensure every girl gets the education she needs to transform her life and secure her future. Issued at the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly, this represents a call to action and shared resolve to work together to deliver for girls.

Platform for Girls’ Education

Established in 2018, the Platform for Girls’ Education is one dimension of the Leave No Girl Behind Campaign. It brings together 12 influential figures from across the Commonwealth with a shared commitment to girls’ education. Together, they are calling for visible political commitment from world leaders, and sufficient, sustained investment in 12 years of quality education that leaves no girl behind.

In Solidarity With Girls

A series of intergenerational dialogues

In response to widespread school closures resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, members of the Platform for Girls’ Education are engaging with youth activists to understand how school closures are impacting young people’s lives as well as the innovative ways in which they are responding to the crisis. Youth activists later came together to develop a series of policy briefs: In Solidarity With Girls: Gender and education in crisis.
