On September 30th, 2020 the ICGBV hosted an online Q&A on school-related gender based violence (SRGBV) during COVID-19. Have protection risks changed in the context of the pandemic? What programme adaptations have been necessary? Are there opportunities to ‘build back better’ regarding quality of education and freedom from violence at school? This event followed on from the ICGBV’s learning brief ‘Safe Education for Girls: Tackling School-Related GBV’.
Three panelists informed the discussion:
- Agnes Kola, Women’s Rights Coordinator, ActionAid Kenya
- Tien Nguyen, Youth Advisory Committee Member, Plan International Vietnam
- Amy Folan, Senior Education Advisor, Concern Worldwide
Opening remarks: Siobhán McGee, ICGBV Chair & CEO ActionAid Ireland
Moderated by Brianna Guidorzi, ICGBV Communications and Policy Officer Chat and Abby Ryan, ICGBV Coordinator
