Research exploring funding for adolescent girls’ rights
Adolescent girls and their allies are contributing to every social justice movement. Yet, girls are not being resourced adequately to meet their expressed needs and materialize their visions. Girls want and need a funding ecosystem in which they can thrive.
Resourcing Girls to Thrive is the outcome of a research process to address significant gaps in the understanding of the adolescent girls’ funding landscape. This research process brought together the contributions and insights from girls from across the world, feminist adolescent girl funders who are resourcing national, regional, and global efforts, as well as a broad range of key stakeholders spanning academia, civil society, philanthropy, and government who are coming from the children’s, women’s, and youth funding fields.
