Investing in education to invest in a better future

ICRW is hosting a side event at the Nairobi Summit (ICPD25) on November 13th. Speakers will delve into gender transformation in education, a focus area of the Cairo Programme Action and a through-line in ICRW research, advocacy and programs for over 15 years. This event will bring together stakeholders from Kenya and around the world to discuss how to guarantee gender equity in education – setting girls up for success in adult life and ensuring a better future for all young people.
