Target Beneficiary households (BHH)
- The project will sustainably improve incomes for 900 extremely poor adolescent girls and their households, as well as advance social identities that allow them to positively influence decisions that affect their lives.
- The innovation will help extreme poor households leave poverty behind by empowering adolescent household members to contribute economically and as informed decision-makers.
- Providing extreme poor adolescent girls with the economic means to start up an income generation activity (IGA), as well as social and leadership skills will enable them to realize their potential as productive members of their households, helping to bring their current households out of poverty.
- Providing girls with social and leadership skills will enable them to positively influence other members of their households and their communities, including their future households as a wife and mother, multiplying the effects of the innovation far beyond the bounds of this project.
