Our work focuses on the Millennium Development Goals and includes a strong emphasis on advocating for policy change and social reform to ensure meaningful participation and inclusion.
For more information on our education, gender, health and youth work:
The Commonwealth works to raise the potential of its people, particularly women, young people, poor people or those on the margins of our societies.
Half of the Commonwealth is under the age of 25, yet 70 million Commonwealth children have never seen the inside of a school.
Women account for around 50 per cent of the world’s population yet in many countries they remain marginalised from full participation in society.
In addition, many other people are marginalised from their communities for reasons ranging from access to basic health and education services to socio-economic and governance opportunities.
