Building back equal: girls back to school guide
The Building Back Equal: Girls Back to School Guide was developed by partners in UNESCO’s COVID-19 Global Education Coalition’s Gender Flagship, as part of a global campaign to ensure all girls can continue to learn during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. The guide aims to help policymakers and practitioners in Ministries of Education and their partners address the gender dimensions of COVID-related school closures. It provides targeted recommendations to ensure continuity of learning while schools are closed, and to establish comprehensive, timely and evidence-based plans for reopening schools in a way that is safe, gender-responsive and child-friendly, and meets the needs of the most marginalized girls. The guide was translated into the Lao language by the Lao National Commission for UNESCO with the support of UNESCO Bangkok.
