Young Lives’ research receives ringing endorsement from the PM’s Special Envoy for Girls’ Education, Helen Grant MP

Poverty & Shocks

Young Lives released our Call 3 headline reports yesterday (Thu 4 March) and the response has already been hugely encouraging. It has always been part of our mission to make sure that our findings make their way to the policymakers who can use them to make a difference. That is why we’re delighted that Helen Grant – the Prime Minister’s Special Envoy for Girls’ Education – has thrown her support behind our most recent findings.

“This crucial research from Young Lives explains why action is needed to get young people in developing countries safely back into education.”

- Helen Grant MP

Amongst the Call 3 headlines, we found that while most of our participants have returned to education, many of the poorest and most vulnerable have lost a year’s learning. Young women, especially, risk being left behind in the return to both work and schooling.
