Education is a fundamental human right and is key to individual, social and national development. It offers the opportunity to realise the attainment of human rights and is an important vehicle for addressing inequality and marginalisation. The Education Sector Gender Policy is geared towards a human rights based approach, ensuring equal rights to education for boys and girls, men and women. The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MoEST) has undertaken the review of the Gender in Education Policy (2007), to incorporate emerging issues that have implications on gender equity and equality in the Education Sector.
