Leave No Girl Behind

Leave No Girl Behind was announced in July 2016 as part of the second phase of the Girls’ Education Challenge. The Leave No Girl Behind initiative intends to reach up to 190,000 highly-marginalised girls and will support essential interventions to provide literacy, numeracy and skills relevant for life and work.

Leave No Girl Behind projects will help tackle harmful social and gender norms that contribute to girls being out of school in multiple countries across Africa and South Asia. They will address complex circumstantial barriers that have led to these high levels or marginalisation which include; girls with disabilities, orphaned girls, child brides, young mothers, nomadic girls, refugees, victims of gender-based violence and modern-day slavery, and girls living in extreme poverty.
