Youth Clubs, Girls’ Empowerment and Gender Equality

This brief presents findings from four organizations that are implementing and researching youth clubs as a tool for girls’ empowerment and gender equality. All are doing so with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation under the Women and Girls at the Center of Development (WGCD) Grand Challenge. The lessons derived from their ongoing monitoring, evaluation and research are framed here to address gaps in evidence identified in Girls’ clubs, life skills programmes and girls’ well-being outcomes, a rigorous review of evidence from over forty clubs, primarily single-sex, conducted by the Overseas Development Institute’s Gender and Adolescence: Global Evidence (GAGE) initiative. These preliminary findings can help to frame future research questions to increase the evidence base on effective club models.

Also referred to as a taxonomy, this Classification scheme is anchored on the unit of a “digital health intervention,” which represents a discrete functionality of the digital technology to achieve health sector objectives.
