Education is crucial for development and one of the most powerful tools that helps children reach their full potential. Gender inequality in education contributes to unequal education outcomes for girls and young women because around the world they face barriers that keep them from going to school or staying there.

Plan International Canada works to improve access to quality and inclusive education by removing barriers and creating safe learning spaces for all children – especially girls. On this page you will find critical research Plan International Canada has done in the field of global education.
