ECW Gender Strategy 2018 - 2021
Education Cannot Wait (ECW)'s Gender Strategy 2018-2021 puts gender equality at the forefront of its financing in emergencies and protracted crises. Meeting ECW’s objective of reaching more than 8 million crisis-affected children can only be achieved by addressing the gender disparities that undermine educational outcomes for girls and boys. ECW recognizes that achieving equality in education will require proactive measures to redress the historical and socio-cultural disadvantages that prevent learners from accessing and benefitting from education on equal grounds. This document includes ECW’s commitment to gender equality, collective education outcomes advancing gender equality, financing modalities, the implementation process and operations.
