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.


So far, the Girls’ Education Challenge has reached over one million marginalised girls. We want to reach more. On 7 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’.
