Supporting girls to continue learning during the coronavirus pandemic

In October 2020, with additional safety measures in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the Ministry of Basic and Senior Secondary Education re-opened schools for the new academic year.

 

UNFPA and partners, fully aware that any gap in formal education can increase a girl’s risk of not returning to school, partnered with Women In Crisis Movement to identify 1,000 vulnerable adolescent girls and supply them with new school uniforms, school bags and additional stationary materials, with funds from Irish Aid.
