DFID Girls’ Education Challenge: Funding Opportunity


The Innovation Window of the Girls’ Education Challenge is now open for funding applications until 29th August 2012. Please refer to the following link for more information: http://www.dfid.gov.uk/gec/iw

The Girls’ Education Challenge (GEC) has been designed to promote innovative approaches to reaching marginalized girls, defined as girls aged 6-19 who have had no access to education, have dropped out of school early (or are at risk of doing so) or have had limited opportunities to learn.

The Innovation Window aims to identify and support promising new ideas that improve learning and the quality of education provided to marginalized girls. Projects may generate new evidence of successful interventions, demonstrate potential for scale up or relevance to other contexts or explore multi-sector interventions. The Innovation Window is also aimed at new partners (such as local organizations, private sector organizations and others) who do not typically receive donor funding. Successful applications will show innovative and cost effective approaches to benefiting girls.
