GDA is mobilizing partners to put gender equality at the heart of education systems, so that all girls and boys have the chance to learn and thrive.
The education of young girls is an essential element of their access to economic autonomy and their emancipation.
132 million girls worldwide are out of school (2016). This includes 34.3 million girls of primary school age, 30 million of lower secondary school age and 67.4 million of upper secondary school age.
Quality of teaching
Teachers are one of the pillars of education systems. Our Vocation is to help developing countries improve the quality of education by ensuring that teachers are qualified, motivated and well supported.
It is worrying that large numbers of teachers lack the knowledge and pedagogical skills required to teach effectively, which ultimately affects children’s learning.

Student mobility & internationalization of the labor market
in a globalized economy, a country’s competitiveness depends largely on the skills of its workforce. One of the goals of higher education is therefore to develop the skills of students, so that they can meet the growing demand for highly skilled workers.
The period of mobility studies is also conducive to the acquisition of multicultural skills.
