Girls Count provides some of the first critical research specifically focused on adolescent girls in the developing world. It demonstrates how providing support to girls age
10-18 dramatically improves their lives–and also results in significant benefits for society as a whole.
Going one step further, this report also includes strategic, concrete action items for policymakers, donors, development professionals, and the private sector to effectively implement change.
Now in its second printing, Girls Count has helped launch a series of comprehensive reports covering a wide range of issues that affect adolescent girls.
