The Coalition for Adolescent Girls (the CAG) brings together more than 80 international organizations that design, implement and evaluate programs that benefit girls throughout the developing world who are trapped in cycles of poverty. When adolescent girls are educated, healthy and financially literate, they can create lasting change within communities and end generations of poverty.

The CAG provides a unique platform for organizations to share information, tools, and resources; to find points of intersection and opportunities for collaboration; build technical capacity; and to strategize on best practices.

Coalition members seek to influence standards of practice across diverse sectors of programming in development and humanitarian contexts in order to ensure that the needs of adolescent girls are met.


In June Global Communities, a humanitarian assistance and sustainable development organization working with communities in more than 30 countries, today announced a new leadership role in the Coalition for Adolescent Girls (CAG) as Fiscal Sponsor.

With Global Communities as our fiscal agent, the CAG will have the stability needed to continue activities that support our diverse group of members to push for meaningful adolescent girl engagement and representation so they are front and center in shaping services and policies that reflect their rights and needs said CAG Co-Chairs
