As announced by the government on the occasion of International Women’s Day, the project will be funded to the tune of 20 million pounds sterling (about 26 million dollars).

It will involve Unicef and multinational companies such as Microsoft, Unilever and Vodafone, as well as several banks.

Ensuring that every girl, especially little ones, has access to 12 years of high-quality education is the best way to end one of the injustices of this world, said Prime Minister Boris Johnson. The private companies that make up the partnership will provide resources such as books, computers and access to their digital networks, as well as educational programs.

The funds will be administered by Generation Without Limits, the public-private initiative sponsored by Unicef, and will be given to institutions in developing countries that request them once they are found to be eligible.

According to Unicef, as a result of the gender inequality that still prevails in the world, nearly one in four girls between the ages of 15 and 19 is unemployed and is not being educated or trained, compared to one in 10 boys.
