Learn about the 3rd African Girls’ Summit where more than 100 young adolescent girls and stakeholders gathered for frank discussions around the theme: Culture, Human Rights and Accountability – Accelerating Elimination of Harmful Practices.  Discussion topics included child marriage, teenage pregnancy, female genital mutilation, sexual abuse and human trafficking, how self-esteem issues hinder the pursuit of STEM education and TVET (technical education and vocational training), male-dominated jobs, and more. In particular, the summit focused on the issue of gender equality in education. Click here to learn more and to read the Call to Action that came out of the Summit.
