Subject: REMINDER - Upcoming Events - Adolescent Girls: Layered Approaches to Programming


REMINDER: ICRW Asia is hosting two events in April that focus on adolescent girls and multilevel programming. With partners, we take a look at the evidence, what works, and how to learn along the way. Please join us on April 7th and 14th! 

1. Multilevel Programming: Layered Support for Adolescent Girls (April 7, 6:30-8:00pm IST, 9:00-10:30am EDT, 1:00-2:30pm GMT)

In this webinar, experts from CARE Ethiopia, SWAAGA, and the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) will share evidence supporting both the need for and impact of multilevel programs. Speakers will provide both quantitative and qualitative findings from their research and discuss how best to integrate key learnings into effective, context-specific programs.

RSVP for April 7


 2. Plan-It Girls: Program, Impact & Learnings (April 14, 4:00-6:00pm IST, 6:30-8:30am EDT, 10:30am-12:30pm GMT)

In this webinar, we will take a deep-dive into the Plan-It Girls program and its findings - from impact evaluation and qualitative study results to cost analysis. Our speakers will talk about school and community implementation and achievements.

RSVP for April 14

From Priya Nanda to Everyone:  09:36 AM

We are talking about ecosystem based multi level programs but the measurement systems only look at individual level change,  what are the reflections on changes in the ecosystem

From Marie Elly to Everyone:  09:39 AM

How can gender equality be addressed? you realize women and girls grow up socialised in some type of way and so making them hard to embrace gender equality and in many cases bring other women down on the same grounds.

About male involvement I believe that is a great start, and I am hoping we include the elderly too and do it from family unit as this is where learning begins.
