EMpower Learning Journey on Adolescent Girls Programming in India

Posted 24 February 2017 in EMpower News   |   Share

​EMpower held a Learning Journey on Adolescent Girls Programming in India from January 31 - February 2, 2017, bringing together nearly all EMpower partners in India for the first time! The 3-day workshop was rich, exciting exchange of ideas and expertise on how to design and improve programming for adolescent girls.

Staff members from 21 grantee partner organizations attended, as well as adolescent girl participants from the Adolescent Girls Learning Community in Mumbai and Delhi-based programs. Each grantee partner representative presented an innovation that they have developed or implemented in their programming for adolescent girls. These ranged from methods to increase girls’ agency through starting a community newsletter, to techniques for improved monitoring and evaluation, to including youth in decision making. The EMpower-created tool, The Girl Path, offered a structure to the workshop as participants brainstormed the challenges that adolescent girls face as well as potential solutions.

EMpower staff members present included Cynthia Steele, Executive Vice President & Global Head of Programs, Nisha Dhawan, Senior Program Officer for India, Jayanthi Pushkaran, Assistant Program Officer for India, Gritt Richter, Senior Program Officer for E/SE Asia, Filiz Bikmen, Senior Program Officer for Turkey, and Kayla Kohlenberg, Development and Communications Associate.
