A Window of Opportunity: Insights from Global and Grassroots Programming with Very Young Adolescent Girls. June 25th, 2020

Increasing global attention to the unique needs and opportunities of programming with and for very young adolescent (VYA) girls—or those between the ages of 10-14—has led to a surge in efforts to understand and support girls on the cusp of this transition to adulthood. Less is known about how local grassroots organizations are working with girls in this age group, and the discoveries they are making about what works.

We would like to invite you to a webinar on findings from a study conducted by EMpower - The Emerging Markets Foundation to learn about the responsive ways that grassroots organizations are engaging with VYA girls, their families, and communities to implement dynamic and sustainable programs that are truly girl-driven and girl-centered. The webinar will also share both testimonies from girls engaged in these programs and recommendations for how this critical stream of work can be better shared, strengthened, and supported.

Panelists:

Esther Amasianya, Girl Leader, Girls Voices Initiative, Abuja, Nigeria

Hafsah Sey Sumani, Head of Programmes & Policy, Norsaac, Tamale, Ghana

Rafia Mohammed, Program Participant, Norsaac, Tamale, Ghana

Kristen Woolf, Vice President of Programs, EMpower, London, England
