Focus Areas

Children with Disabilities
Education is one of the most effective ways to break the cycle of discrimination that children with disabilities experience. GPE promotes inclusive education to ensure all children can go to school.
Countries Affected by Fragility and Conflict
35% of the out-of-school children worldwide of primary school age live in areas of conflict. Education can give them a visible sign of return to normalcy in these difficult contexts.
Development Effectiveness
GPE is strongly committed to the principles of development effectiveness adopted by the international community to achieve results in the education sector.
Early Childhood Care and Education
Investing in care and education for children in their early years improves their well-being and their chances to learn and escape poverty. GPE supports ECCE programs for the poorest children.
Early Grade Reading
Reading is the foundation of learning. Ensuring that children learn to read in early grades will determine their future success in school and in life.
Girls' Education and Gender Equality
GPE encourages partner countries to help more girls enroll in school to receive a good quality education. Educated girls make good choices for themselves and their families.
Knowledge and Good Practice Exchange
GPE strengthens technical and institutional capacity of its partners to build effective and efficient education systems that deliver improved outcomes in learning, equity, gender equality and inclusion.
Learning Outcomes
Too many children attend several years of school without learning the basics. GPE works to improve their learning experience in particular in reading and math.
Out-of-school Children
There are still too many children, most of them poor and marginalized, who don't have access to school. GPE aims to reduce the number of out-of-school children through targeted support in partner countries.
Teachers
Teachers are an essential link in the education chain: they deliver education to children. GPE promotes policies that support teachers through recruitment and training.
