[16DaysAgainstGBV] National Webinar - What Works for Prevention of School Related Gender Based Violence


The event is a webinar to share experiences and lessons from the initiatives of Ministry of Education, Government of Ethiopia and development partners (UN agencies, civil society organizations) on School Related Gender Based Violence prevention. The Ministry of Education (MoE), Government of Ethiopia with support from the World Bank is implementing the General Education Quality Improvement Program for Equity (GEQIP-E). The operation seeks to improve internal efficiency, equitable access, and quality in general education. It incorporates gender targeted actions in its design, including actions aimed at GBV prevention. The Ethiopia Gender Platform’s (EGP) provides technical support to GEQIP-E for strengthening school gender clubs to enhance impact on SRGBV prevention. The webinar, organized by the EGP with support from the State and Peacebuilding Fund (SPF), will contribute to the ongoing efforts of the MoE, the World Bank and other development partners on SRGBV prevention, by providing a forum for knowledge sharing between GEQIP-E and other operations. Sharing learnings from operational experiences can pave the way for further investments in research to deepen understanding of impacts on SRGBV prevention and in designing well-informed programs and policies.
