Mott MacDonald’s Girls’ Education South Sudan (GESS) programme will be exhibiting at Women Deliver 2016 this year in Copenhagen from 16 to 19 May 2016.
Women Deliver will be the largest gathering on girls’ and women’s health and rights in the past decade and one of the first major global conferences following the launch of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Funded by UK aid, GESS is transforming the lives of a generation of children in South Sudan – especially girls – through education. Since 2014, over 120,000 individual girls have received a Cash Transfer through the programme. Over 3,000 schools have received a school Capitation Grant, improving quality education for 375,000 girls and 550,000 boys.
The innovative programme has continued to deliver nationwide, even in conflict-affected areas of South Sudan.
GESS will be showcasing results, lessons learnt and experiences from almost three years of implementation. Visit us at the conference in section C3, booth 081 near the Youth Zone to learn more, or go to www.girlseducationsouthsudan.org.
