|As the 16 Days of Activism to End Violence comes to a close, we remind all partners that ending School-Related Gender-Based violence remains a key barrier to boys and girls accessing their right to a safe and quality education.|
Throughout our #EndSRGBV campaign, The Global Working Group to End SRGBV and partners gave us an insight into the important work they are doing at global and country level to end gender based violence in and around schools. From engaging education unions, to calling for greater accountability and sharing of best practices in mitigating threats to education for girls in conflict settings, we recognise the critical role of teachers in ending SRGBV.
Honouring our commitment to raising the voices of teachers and education unions in their efforts towards the elimination of SRGBV in schools around the world, in 2018 we will continue to highlight the best practices and learnings from teachers unions through Education Unions Speak! – a multimedia series featuring videos, podcasts, and interviews from education unionists working towards the elimination of gender-based violence in and around schools in 7 African countries. To follow this campaign, supported by Education International, the UN Girls’ Education Initiative, Gender at Work and the Government of Canada, find us on twitter and facebook under the hashtag #UnionsSpeak
We invite all of our partners, to extend their support to the elimination of school-related gender-based violence beyond the 16 days of Activism, by reading and sharing our #EndSRGBV campaign highlights below. More here
