ActionAid panel on girls' education
 3 June, 2-3 pm, UN Church Centre

Speakers:  Professor Mlama, Forum of African Women Educationalists; Joana
Maria Dulcie, The East Timorese Women' Group; Geraldine Terry, Oxfam;
Cecilia Millan, ActionAid Latin
America and Caribbean region.
Chairperson: Sheila Wamahiu (WERK and UNICEF
Education Advisor).

The World Education Forum meeting in Dakar in April 2000 reaffirmed the
target of eliminating gender disparities in primary and secondary
education by 2005. Yet gender gaps in education have not narrowed
significantly and indeed have grown even larger in some countries since this
target was set. Panellists will be discussing strategies to meet the 2005 target, including the changes to the Further Actions and Initiatives text --
recommended in the Elimu lobby paper -- that must be achieved if the final
document is to have any impact at all on national policy. The Elimu lobby paper will be circulated during the meeting.

Elimu is an international South-North network of people working for free
compulsory quality education for all.
