UNGEI Good Practice Fund

From 2014 - 2016 the ‘UNGEI Good Practice Fund’ supported 17 organisations and local governments from across the globe to shed light on best practices and lessons learnt in gender focused education initiatives – these are our findings.

Go to Case Studies

Start with the community

Engage parents and the community to breakdown discriminatory social norms and create networks of support.

Design with a gender lens

Embed gender specific objectives from the start to ensure outcomes for boys and girls.

Aim for empowerment

Strengthen girls’ confidence, decision-making skills and agency as this increases both learning and life outcomes.

Adopt a holistic approach

Tackle multiple channels of exclusion across the entire life experience of girls and boys.

Include boys

This leads to safer and respectful learning environments and lasting effects outside the classroom.
