Gender at the Centre (GCI)

Initiative

Women’s rights are human rights and need to be protected across the world. The initiative “Gender at the Centre – Putting gender equality at the centre of education sector planning”, developed in the G7 framework in cooperation with UNESCO, aims to give more girls in sub-Saharan Africa access to good education. Because despite global progress, 130 million girls still do not enjoy education, their human right. This initiative takes a new approach: in cooperation with Education Ministries, the focus will shift more to girls.
