Promoting Positive Deviance!

The power of Positive Deviants!
The power of Positive Deviants!

In our effort to build on what’s working in communities already, we pay a lot of attention to "positive deviants"—girls and women in a community who model smart practices, such as hand washing, using a mosquito net, saving for a goal or eating nutritional food.

In addition to equipping girls and women with new knowledge and skills, Reach education highlights the practices of positive deviants to make educational lessons even more relevant and powerful for their peers, and family and community members.

If you'd like to read more about the power of positive deviants, check out this New York Times article from March.

It’s clear that momentum is building and others believe, as we do, that investing in adolescent girls and women is both the right thing to do and smart for families, communities and society. We thank you for your belief in our work and invite you to contribute to it by making a donation at the link below or at our website.

Thank you again!
