Summary

Protecting Girls' Access to Education in Vulnerable Settings Act

This bill urges the consideration of the educational needs of vulnerable women and girls in designing, implementing, and evaluating U.S. foreign assistance policies and programs.

The Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) may advance programs that:

  • provide safe, primary and secondary education for displaced children;
  • build the capacity of institutions in countries hosting displaced people to prevent displaced children from facing educational discrimination; and
  • help increase the access of displaced children, especially girls, to educational, economic, and entrepreneurial opportunities.

The State Department and USAID may:

  • coordinate with multilateral organizations to work with foreign governments to collect relevant data, disaggregated by age and gender, on the ability of displaced people to access education and participate in economic activity; and
  • work with domestic and foreign private sector and civil society organizations to promote safe, primary and secondary education for displaced children.
