This Statement of Action sets out how we will take individual, collective and complementary action on 4 interlinked areas where the evidence shows us that we can achieve transformational and cost-effective change for marginalised girls:

  • marginalised girls and women shaping their education
  • targeted financing for marginalised girls’ education
  • data and evidence for gender equitable planning and programming
  • reducing barriers to marginalised girls’ education
