Every child should have the chance to learn through play – in school and out
But to make sure education is fair for all, we need to give girls special attention.
Why? When girls learn equally alongside boys, gender gaps close, economies grow, and the world is fairer, healthier and more prosperous for everyone.
The world’s already come a long way
Today, more girls than ever go to school. But despite all that progress, 129 million girls worldwide still miss out on a quality education (or, in some cultures, any education at all). So, we’ve joined forces with the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) and pledged to their Girls’ Education Accelerator to do something about it.
GPE partner with countries to understand the gender inequalities girls face. Then they put funding in the right places to break down educational barriers and get girls into the classroom.
