Young women’s leadership: why it matters!

5 Jul 2017
Description

How can programs supporting young women’s leadership make a tangible difference in the day-to-day lives of young women, particularly those from disadvantaged areas?

Program, which has now been delivered in 10 countries across the Asia-Pacific region, Lesley Pruitt and Katrina Lee-Koo outline the benefits these training opportunities offer to young women. They suggest that some of the most beneficial outcomes from such programs are the self-advocacy and peer education skills they learn and take back with them to their villages.
