This study, entitled “Adolescent Girls Voices on Enhancing their Own Productivity in Pakistan,” was conducted in Punjab by the Population Council, with the support of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), to examine the lives, aspirations, and perspectives of the largely invisible and marginalized group of older adolescent girls (ages 15–19 years) who are “not in education, employment for pay or profit, nor in marriage” (“NEEM”).
