UNGEI global conference on girls’ education focuses on preventing “56 million wasted opportunities”

conference designed to find new ways to ensure that some 56 million children – most of them girls – do not miss out on their right to education opens in Senegal today. The “Engendering Empowerment: Education and Equality” (E4) conference on gender equality and education is being organized by the United Nations Girls' Education Initiative (UNGEI) and marks the tenth anniversary of the UNGEI global partnership.

In the last decade, there has been progress in girls’ education and many more girls and boys have been enrolled in schools worldwide. Gender gaps have closed or are closing in most regions, including central and Eastern Europe, East Asia and Latin America.
