Georgian schools to teach gender equality in curriculum

Category: Gender in Caucasus 

Human rights, gender equality, healthy living and reproductive health will soon be an integral part of the Georgian school curriculum.


The Georgian Ministry of Education and Science signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the United Nations (UN) Joint Programme for Gender Equality to assist the ongoing revision of the national curriculum and help integrate the issues of human rights, gender equality and healthy living into the educational programme with support of the Government of Sweden.

Cooperation between the Georgian Ministry and three UN agencies – United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and United Nation Entity for Gender Equality and the


Empowerment of Women (UN Women) covers three main areas of secondary education:

  • formal education in schools;
  • non-formal education, including for optional courses and parents’ education;
  • vocational education and training.



The UN will assist the Ministry of Education to analyse the school and college curriculum from the gender equality perspective, develop new educational programmes, upgrade teaching methodologies, train teachers and career counselors and share best international practices in promoting human rights, gender equality and healthy lifestyle through general education.
