Moving Beyond Access for Girls' Education

Picture of the week

During our Replenishment Conference in Brussels on June 26, a graphic artist captured some of the main points of various sessions in "live" infographics.  This one on girls' education reflects the discussion taking place with two ministers from Nepal and the United Kingdom and high level representatives from civil society and international organizations. The infographic emphasizes among other things that the transition between primary and secondary school is critical for girls, and that empowering girls means that the whole society benefits. The event also issued a call to action that participants signed to show their commitment to accelerating progress for girls.
