According to UNICEF, 49% of girls are missing out on primary education in Sudan. As a consequence of unegalitarian views towards women, educators can easily implement their views on who they allow to enroll in schools, and the large number of families who struggle with the cost of education generally choose to give boys educational opportunities.

In addition, the quality of teachers is very low in the country and the severe lack of female teachers often creates a learning environment that is hostile to girls. To improve education in targeted areas, GPE is investing in initiatives like the Basic Education Recovery Project, to the tune of US$76 million, which significantly helps girls education in Sudan.
