The global development community is just beginning to grasp the complex social, health and economic challenges facing adolescent girls.

This report compiles the first-ever view of poverty from a girl’s perspective. Hearing directly from them, in their own words, provides unique insight and understanding of their issues.

Together their voices reinforce what the data suggests: Education, safety, economic opportunity -- and delaying marriage and childbirth – are vital to fulfilling their potential.

Bright, hopeful and eager for change, these girls are an inspiration.
