Conflict directly derails education, yet it is education that is a catalysis towards renascence of Africa.
There is need to deliberate, understand and exchange ideas on policies, legislation, plans, financing and monitoring reforms within the education continuum while being cognizant of conflict situations in Africa. Achieving this process would require taking stock of progress made in educational context of girls and women living in countries that have experienced conflict.
The Government of Kenya, the Canadian Government in collaboration with the Office of Special envoy of chairperson for African Union Commission of Women Peace & Security, and the Forum for African Women Educationalist (FAWE) are convening a conference focusing on girls and women’s access to education in conflict and post conflict situations in Africa.
The conference is taking place on 22 May 2019 at Windsor Golf and Country Hotel. Participation is strictly by invitation.
