The project will provide analytical support to the “Platform for Girls’ Education”: a group of 12 leaders co-chaired by British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt and Kenyan Education Minister Amina Mohamed that will champion this agenda during the UK’s 2018 to 2020 term as Commonwealth Chair-in-Office.
Focusing primarily on the needs of developing countries where girls are most likely to be missing out on a quality education, the Platform will:
- galvanise political will to deliver on commitments to girls’ education made at CHOGM 2018
- highlight examples of best practice to showcase success in girls’ education
- promote additional commitments and action in the run-up to the next Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Rwanda in 2020
- produce a report ahead of CHOGM 2020 capturing progress achieved and further action required to meet relevant commitments under the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals
The project will span 2 financial years, 1 October 2018 to 31 March 2020.
To bid for funds, potential implementers will need to view the ‘call for bids and the 2 proposal forms.
Project proposals must be received by midnight on Monday 3rd September. Late proposals will not be considered.
