Join Aga Khan Foundation and key stakeholders in girls’ education to engage in the launch of a new report, Delivering girls’ education where the risks are high: Key priorities for programming in fragile contexts.

The report collates successes and learnings shared by over 200 representatives from international non-governmental organisations (INGOs), local NGOs, researchers, funders, and policy makers who participated in AKF’s virtual conference in March 2021.

The report includes inputs from the FCDO, USAID, Aga Khan Foundation, Save the Children, CARE, Catholic Relief Services, the Regional Education Learning Initiative, and more civil society and non-governmental organisations that reflect updated recommendations about what is important when considering future directions for girls’ education in fragile contexts.

Speakers will discuss the 10 key priorities and invite key stakeholders to reflect and showcase why these priorities are important for their respective contexts and programmes.
