Graduate Women International Executive Director Danièle Castle speaks at side event at HRC32
Graduate Women International (GWI) participated in a side event on ‘Non-formal education for gender equality’ at the 32nd Human Rights Council (HRC32) on 28 June 2016. The event was hosted by Soka Gakkai and other speakers were from the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) of Sri Lanka and Kenya. Non-formal education provides skills to those who have missed out on formal schooling and suffer reduced economic options and limited social participation as a result. It can be a way of reaching isolated or indigenous communities through non-traditional means (such as radio, theatre and mobile phones) and includes financial and digital literacy and other specific skills development to facilitate income generation opportunities. For more insight, read GWI’s manifesto on Non-Traditional Education.

CFUW-Ottawa host garden party to raise funds for higher education scholarships for Afghan women
The Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW)-Ottawa's study and project group, University Women Helping Afghan Women (UWHAW), hosted a successful fundraising 'Summer Evening Garden Party' on 14 June 2016, attended, as has been the case for the last five years, by very high profile individuals. Money raised from this event goes to scholarships for Afghan women to attend the Gawharshad Institute of Higher Education in Kabul. Awardees receive an education that empowers them to break the cycle of violence that often stems from poverty and lack of opportunity. It is hoped that, armed with these skills, the graduates can contribute to a better understanding of the universal values of human rights, foster socio-economic development and sustain civil society in Afghanistan. For more information on the UWHAW project, please see here.

Menstruation a stigma and barrier to girls’ education around the world
The natural process of menstruation contributes to the high rate of secondary school drop out in many parts of the developing world. This is due to a lack of access to adequate toilet facilities or sanitary pads, particularly in rural areas. In sub-Saharan Africa, a girl absent from school due to menstruation for four days a month loses 13 learning days, equivalent to two weeks of learning, in every school term. It is estimated that within the four years of high school the same girl loses 156 learning days, equivalent to almost 24 weeks out of 144 weeks of learning. Positive action to achieve gender parity in secondary and continuing education involves engagement with communities on the benefits of girls’ education, as well as destigmatising gender issues such as menstruation with boys and men. GWI and its affiliated members and associations worldwide address barriers to girls and women’s inclusive access to education with advocacy and projects.
