Having access to early childhood education is a challenge in Mongolia given the nomadic lifestyle of much of the rural population. A grant provided by the Global Partnership for Education helps Mongolian children from disadvantaged communities get access to early childhood education. The government has used the grant to construct schools and mobile ger-kindergartens in rural areas.
South Sudan faces significant challenges in the education sector, especially in terms of gender equality. A program jointly funded by the Global Partnership for Education and USAID promotes girls’ education in the country to ensure that girls as well as boys have access to a quality education. The goal is to strengthen the South Sudanese education system in terms of equity and equality for all children.
Sometimes education challenges require innovative approaches that reach beyond the education sector. The School Meal Program in the Lao People’s Democratic Republic (PDR) supported by the Global Partnership for Education is such an example.
In Somalia, after years of conflict, the Global Partnership’s processes and financial support are promoting a more coordinated, harmonized and focused effort to support education.
