Adolescent Girls: New toolkit for improving choices & opportunities

Home |  News | Adolescent Girls: New toolkit for improving choices & opportunities

When the girl child is given an opportunity to develop her potential and have choices, there are benefits to the society at large and the girl child, including good health and quality of life.

Christian Aid Nigeria has published a new toolkit for Faith Leaders, ‘Improving the Choices and Opportunities for Adolescent Girls’.

The toolkit has been designed as a guide for religious leaders of both Christian and Islamic faiths in Nigeria as they address the challenges faced by adolescent girls on the issues of early marriage, education, reproductive health services and economic empowerment.

The toolkit is an initiative of Christian Aid Nigeria, working in partnership with the Gender Awareness Trust and the Development and Peace Initiative as part of the Collective Action for Adolescent Girls Initiative (CAAGI).

CAAGI seeks to improve the choices and opportunities available to adolescent girls in Northern Nigeria to enable them reach their full potential. The toolkit will guide faith leaders as they provide training and share messages/sermons on accurate Christian and Islamic perspectives on issues of early marriage, education, reproductive health and the economic empowerment of adolescent girls.
