Girls Grow: A Vital Force In Rural Economics

Event Date: 
October 7, 2011 (All day)

260 million adolescent girls live in rural areas of the developing world, and hold a key to unlocking a prosperous future for themselves, their families, and their communities. Girls Grow: A Vital Force in Rural Economies evaluates the role of adolescent girls in the developing world and identifies opportunities for national governments and bilateral donors to equip these girls to be agents of economic and social change.

Catherine Bertini, former executive director of the UN World Food Program, serves as the project’s chair.

Girls Grow 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. Generous support for Girls Grow is provided by the Nike, Bill & Melinda Gates, and United Nations Foundations.

This event is presented by The Chicago Council on Global Affairs in partnership with All-Party Parliamentary Group & Girl Effect.
