Missing the emergency. Shifting the Paradigm for Relief to Adolescent Girls

The Coalition for Adolescent Girls was initiated in 2005 by the United Nations Foundation and the Nike Foundation, and has been joined by more than 30 leading international organizations, to bring fresh perspectives, diverse resources and concrete solutions to the challenges facing adolescent girls globally. When girls are educated, healthy, and financially literate, they will play a key role in ending generations of poverty. The Coalition's supporters are committed to creating lasting change for adolescent girls, leveraging existing initiatives, and mobilizing new allies on behalf of adolescent girls.
