GEC is working to create a gender-equal world. When half the population is excluded from the conversation, the negative impacts are damaging and far-reaching. Through our work, we are building a future where all girls are getting the education they seek and deserve — and entire communities will benefit.
By acting as a pivotal partner, ally, and catalyst for local initiatives, GEC provides essential support to these efforts to equip girls with education and life skills, helping them develop their own agency and realize their fullest potential.
Systemic gender inequality is a human-rights infraction that prevents millions of girls from receiving an education they seek. This barrier to education not only limits half the population, but also hinders the advancement of society, especially in underserved, rural areas in developing economies. Educating girls can break the cycle of generational poverty.
Together, we can show the world that there’s nothing a girl can’t do.
