Upcoming Publication: Girls Grow: A Vital Force in Rural Economies

Leave a comment

An upcoming report by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, Girls Grow: A Vital Force in Rural Economies will evaluate the role of adolescent girls in the developing world and identify opportunities for national governments and bilateral donors to equip these girls to be agents of economic and social change. This report serves as the next volume of the Girls Count series. 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 ages 10-18 dramatically improves their lives – and also results in significant benefits for society as a whole.  A launch event for this publication is scheduled for early October in the United Kingdom, read more here.
