Translating CSE Commitments into Action | Global Education Summit | Monday 26th July 14.00 BST

Dear all,

I’m pleased to share an invite for our side event at the Global Education Summit next week ‘Translating Comprehensive Sexuality Education Commitments into Action’.

Up to 4 million more girls in sub-Saharan Africa could stay in school and complete their education by expanding access to reproductive healthcare and information. Whilst in recent years, there has been considerable political momentum and commitments made to improve access to and implementation of CSE, many countries face challenges when seeking to implement it. The event will launch a new tool that governments and others can use to ensure that their commitments on CSE translate into tangible action and progress.

The event will be on Monday 26th July at 2-3pm BST and speakers include Helen Grant MP, the UK Prime Minister’s Special Envoy for Girls’ Education and Diene Kieta, Deputy Executive Director at UNFPA. Register here!

Best wishes
