Global Education Fund recognizes that barriers to learning vary across regions. To address this, GEF works hand-in-hand with local partners – innovative leaders and their organizations in Kenya, India, and Guatemala – to provide culturally-relevant and transformative education opportunities so that girls and boys are not only able to enroll and stay in school, but also are engaged in learning and reflection about important issues and problems relevant to their communities.
GEF is deeply committed to ensuring that all children, particularly girls and marginalized populations, are given the opportunity to receive a quality education. In the developing world, achieving an education remains a major obstacle, especially for girls. Often, girls are kept at home to help provide for their families, or they drop out of school for an early or forced marriage. As a result, girls often marry young, and bear many children. This year alone, 14 million girls under the age of 18 will get married, and many of them will die in childbirth! Global Education Fund believes that educating girls ripples out with positive impacts to both their families and society, now and for future generations.
By providing children in need with access to education, quality learning tools, and leadership skills GEF is helping young people lead productive lives and enabling them to become change-makers in their homes, schools, and communities.
