Ending School-Related Gender-Based Violence (SRGBV) is one of UNGEI’s key priorities. SRGBV devastates the lives of millions globally. For students, it affects their ability to get to and from school, to learn effectively while in school, and to remain there long enough to reap the benefits. Girls are particularly vulnerable to SRGBV, the consequences of which can jeopardize health, lead to unwanted pregnancy, and keep whole families entrapped in the cycle of poverty.
