On the margins of the GPE Board of Directors Meeting in Dublin, Ireland, Alice Albright, GPE’s Chief Executive Officer met with students at the Presentation Primary and Presentation Secondary Schools Warrenton.

Located in Dublin’s inner city, the all-girl schools share a campus with the community education center which provides opportunities for life-long learning to the entire community.

The primary students talked about what they would like to become when they have finished school ranging from math teacher to hairdresser and psychiatrist. The older students presented projects they had been working on including one on the Sustainable Development Goals and another one on fashion design and technology.

The school goals are to develop the self-confidence and potential of each student to achieve her very best so that she can take her place in society with an education and the life skills to be a confident, active and responsible young women.

Ireland is a partner of GPE and has contributed more than US$85 million in support of children’s education in developing countries.
