Data-driven advocacy for girls’ education in emergencies in Africa
Global Affairs Canada-funded project on girls
The project aims to work with women’s rights organizations and decision makers to improve the collection and use of gender data to advance education for girls and women in fragile environments within Kenya and Burkina Faso.
The project is part of the Global Affairs Canada commitment to the Charlevoix declaration, which aims to improve education for girls and women affected by crises, as well as lead to the collection of better sex and age-disaggregated data on education in emergencies.
Currently, we are mapping and compiling data that is broadly relevant to the education of girls and women in unstable contexts in Burkina Faso and Kenya, which includes global, regional, national, subnational, and intersectional considerations. With the data outputs we plan to undertake advocacy with key stakeholders in 2021 on the critical role of data driven advocacy in driving change on girls’ education.
