NEW YORK, United States of America, January 27, 2022/APO Group/ --

The Chair of the Global Partnership for Education (GPE), former Tanzanian president Jakaya Kikwete, says that although the key objective is helping disadvantaged children everywhere get access to quality schooling, supporting girls is their top priority.

In an exclusive interview with UN News, Mr. Kikwete said that gender equality is hard-wired “in everything we do”.

After meeting UN Secretary-General António Guterres at UN Headquarters this week which also saw the world mark the International Day of Education, the distinguished Chair of GPE sat down with Leah Mushi, to review how the partnership has been fulfilling its mission over the past 20 years.
