Investing in the Poorest Girls in the Poorest Communities—Adolescent Girls Programming from Analysis to Scale in Asia, Africa, and Latin America with Judith Bruce from the Population Council

April 5, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Dear Friends of the Sahel,

Please join us for an afternoon talk with Judith Bruce from the Population Council in which she will talk about her work in designing, implementing, and evaluating effective, scalable programs around the world to improve the lives of the poorest adolescent girls in the poorest communities.

Bruce’s 30-year tenure at the Population Council has been devoted to learning how best to build adolescent girls’ health, social, and economic assets for a healthy, safe, and productive transition to adulthood. Bruce and her associates at the Council have pioneered the use of Safe Spaces — mentor-led groups that offer adolescent girls opportunities for social support, mentoring, and meaningful educational opportunities that include financial literacy, livelihoods skills and savings, and health information and access. This work engages grassroots organizations, governments, nongovernmental organizations, and donors in a multi-country effort to foster large-scale change for adolescent girls.

You can read more about her work at popcouncil.org.

This talk is being hosted by The OASIS Initiative and the School of Public Health. It is free and open to the public.

Thank you very much,
The OASIS Initiative
