Out of the 600 million adolescent girls globally, many do not receive the health education and support they need to achieve their full potential. Social pressures and gender inequality make adolescent girls globally particularly vulnerable to significant health consequences. We believe an untapped resource can help address this problem: the girls themselves. Through our flagship program, Girls Health Champions, we cultivate a global network of youth health educators (Champions) who lead the educational process in their schools and communities and support one another and their peers in successfully navigating the transition to adulthood in a healthy manner.
Each of GlobalGiving’s nonprofit partners is required to send quarterly donor reports detailing the impact of their work.
