UNOPS

Week 1 - She Builds: Communities

The first week of the campaign kicks off with the theme She Builds: Communities.

UNOPS is featuring the story of UNOPS Education, Gender and Community Participation Adviser, Shamima Tasmin. Shamima was part of a project in South Sudan that aimed to reduce high school drop out rates for girls. By talking with the community to uncover some of the more critical issues that affected girls' school attendance, they were able to reduce the rate of girls dropping out before grade 8 by 39 percent.
