Girls' Education Challenge

The Girls' Education Challenge (GEC) is helping up to a million of the world’s poorest girls improve their lives through education.

We are please to announce that applications for Leave No Girl Behind (LNGB) concept notes are now open. Full details are available on the GEC webpage.

Overview

So far, the Girls’ Education Challenge has reached over one million marginalised girls. We want to reach more. On 7th July, the Secretary of State for International Development announced £100 million of further funding for the Girls’ Education Challenge.

This provides an exciting opportunity to continue our work to support some of the world’s most marginalised girls and to stretch our ambition to ‘leave no one behind’.

We are looking for organisations who can develop new and innovative solutions, or scale up successful existing interventions, to deliver quality education and skills to the hardest to reach girls in order to improve their overall life chances. We welcome applications from individual organisations, or consortia, representing the non-profit and private sectors.

For further information please visit the GEC webpage.

How to apply

We invite applicants to outline their proposed intervention, its planned duration and expected costs in a high-level Concept Note. The deadline for submitting concept notes is 20 December 2016. Short-listed applicants will then be invited to submit a Full Proposal in March 2017.
