How can we all contribute to achieving gender equality?
Watch this UNESCO video celebrating 25 years of efforts to advance equality in education
When women and girls are empowered, a door for economic growth and social development opens. Watch UNESCO’s video, which summarizes 25 years of progress for gender equality in education, an issue that’s still unresolved.
“To truly achieve success, we must take an intersectional approach that considers not just gender, but race, ethnicity, disability and poverty, and the ways these interact for different populations,” notes the narrator in the video.
Promoting gender equality so girls and boys can access equal opportunities is a key goal at Children Believe. In 2019/2020, we provided 17,000 young women with vocational and business-skills development training so they could improve their well-being.
