GIRLS: EQUAL ACCESS TO EDUCATION

Through our partnership with Mary Jo Toll, SND Coesfeld, our SNDatUN NGO Office participates in the NGO Committee on UNICEF/Working Group on Girls which focuses its efforts on improving the lives of girls around the world. Along with other NGOs, Mary Jo is currently organizing an Orientation Day for Girls in preparation for the Commission on the Status of Women next February. The theme for the upcoming CSW is equal access for girls to math, science, and technology; we know that a girl makes a difference in her country’s development when she has an opportunity to finish primary school and go to secondary school and university.
