Gender Unit

The Ministry of Education, Science, Tchnology and Sports has been at the fore front of fighting gender inequalities in the education sector since the early 1990s. A number of initiatives and interventions have been implemented in the directorate of Basic and secondary education. Key to this is the setting up of the Gender mainstreaming unit.

The gender unit is mandated to work hand in hand with all sub sectors in education to mainstream gender initiatives. The gender initiatives in each sub sector are highlighted in the profile.
