Smart, Successful, Strong:

The case for investing in adolescent girls’ education in aid and COVID-19 response and recovery

This report shines a light on the impact of COVID-19 on adolescent girls in South East Asia and the Pacific and their experiences of accessing secondary education over the last twelve months. The report is a collaboration between Plan International’s offices in Australia, Indonesia and Vietnam with support from colleagues and partners across the Asia Pacific region.

This report is intended to be a rallying cry to all donors and governments to act now, not only to stop the unravelling of decades of progress in education, but to create an equal world; one where all children can live happy and healthy lives and where girls can take their rightful place as equals. A world where girls are supported by their families, their communities and their governments to fulfil their right to 12 years of education.


Will you add your name to call on the Australian Government to take action so girls everywhere can complete their education? Join now.
