Focusing investments where they’re needed most
Strengthening partnerships to drive progress
Empowering decision-makers with evidence
When all adolescents learn equally, the world becomes more equal, too.
The Evidence for Gender and Education Resource (EGER) seeks to address gender inequalities
and injustices in global education. By providing easily accessible data and evidence, we
support the gender and education community as a knowledge partner and inform programs
and policies that shape the global agenda. With evidence and partnership at the center,
EGER seeks to create a world with better education for all.
