Halted Lives

The impact of COVID-19 on girls’ lives and education

The COVID-19 pandemic has seen inequalities increase around the world and driven back decades of progress on gender equality & girls’ education.

This week, as world leaders gather in London for the Global Partnership for Education’s Global Education summit, we are shining a spotlight on the impacts of the pandemic on girls’ lives and education across the world.

Our Halted Lives series of conversations will take you on a (virtual) journey from Amman to Dublin, from, Freetown to Washington DC.

The conversations platform the voices of children and young people as they share their experiences of the pandemic and their hopes for the future.

The series also features Minister for Overseas Development & The Diaspora Colm Brophy, CEO of the GPE Alice Albright, presenter Maia Dunphy and singer-songwriter Gemma Hayes.
