The Gender at the Centre Initiative (GCI) supports 8 countries in sub-Saharan Africa (Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Mozambique, Niger, Nigeria, Sierra Leone) to tackle the root causes of gender inequality and develop gender-transformative education systems.
Within the framework of the GCI, UNGEI and Dalberg undertook community-based research to better understand the social determinants, norms, and perceptions hampering girls’ education in Sierra Leone and identified positive pathways to transform social norms and help girls and boys fulfil their dreams.
The live webinar will bring together education stakeholders from national and global levels, including youth activists to reflect on the study results and identify actions needed to effectively transform social norms within the education system and beyond.
