This talk will outline some of the current examples of Save the Children’s programming in both emergency and conflict/protracted crises settings and will in particular, discuss their work on the Department for International Development’s Girls Education Challenge (GEC). The GEC is currently being implemented by Save the Children in 4 countries – Afghanistan Ethiopia , DRC and Mozambique.
