Of the 27 Girls’ Education Challenge (GEC) projects currently implementing, two are specifically targeting displaced populations, representing 7% of the overall portfolio.

A further 14 projects are in the inception stage, and of these five are planning to specifically target displaced populations. This will bring the overall percentage of GEC projects specifically targeting displaced populations to 17%.
