Women and Girls Lead Bangladesh has been working to prevent girls’ dropout and child marriage for over three years. Our community facilitators play a very important role in this process, many of them coming from the same communities and situations as the girls at risk of child marriage. We worked to discover an effective way to collect impact data and share it back with communities, and are now excited to pilot the breakthrough reporting platform that has emerged from those initial ideas.
A village in Gujarat, India has banned girls below the age of 18 from using mobile phones. According to the village head, mobile phones are a “nuisance to society” that distract girls from their studies and other chores. Women and Girls Lead Global wants to change that.
