#DEEPENTHEDEBATE: NGOS on the Frontline for Girls’ Education in Crisis -Twitter Chat
Twitter chat, Thursday May 12, 2022, 14:00-15:00 CEST
During humanitarian crises or conflicts girls need safe and protective learning environments, they require learning continuity and gender-responsive education solutions. The GEM 2022 Gender Report: Deepening the debate on those still left behind explores the important role played by non-governmental organizations (NGOs) for girls’ education needs in crisis. NGOs have the flexibility, responsiveness, adaptability, capacity and expertise required to work in challenging conditions, although concerns remain about ways to improve sustainability of their activities.
The GEM Report, Education Cannot Wait and the Malala Fund will co-host a twitter chat to #DeepentheDebate on the role of non-state interventions for protecting and promoting girls’ education in crisis. The twitter chat will feature NGO leaders focusing on non-formal education, including alternative learning centres, accelerated teaching, temporary schools, mobile learning and distance learning programmes to ensure that girls and women do not pay the price in crisis and conflict with their future.
