The global development community is just beginning
to grasp the complex social, health and economic challenges facing adolescent girls.
This report compiles the first-ever view of poverty
from a girl’s perspective. Hearing directly from them,
in their own words, provides unique insight and
understanding of their issues.
Together their voices reinforce what the data
suggests: Education, safety, economic opportunity
— and delaying marriage and childbirth — are vital to
fulfilling their potential.
Bright, hopeful and eager for change, these girls are an inspiration.
