Education for Girls: Alternative Pathways to Girls' Empowerment
Author/Publisher: Girl Hub, Nike Foundation, DFID, 2013
This paper is one of a series of five Issue Papers commissioned by the Department for International Development, UK (DFID) and the Girl Hub, synthesizing key evidence on integrated approaches to economic assets, health, education, social norms and preventing violence, in improving the lives of adolescent girls. The focus on integrated approaches (addressing more than one area such as health and education) aimed to assess evidence testing the strength of integrated approaches, and to avoid duplicating recent sectoral based reviews. Each Issue Paper is accompanied by a mapping of relevant research and evaluations of interventions.
