About the playlist

When all modules of this learning path are taken together, you will learn the basic elements of gender-transformative approaches and how to apply the socio-ecological model when designing a programme. You will also learn how to apply these a gender transformative approach to implement tailored programming for adolescent girls, including the most vulnerable girls. With this foundation, the learning path then focuses on the application of this foundational learning to programming designed to end child marriage and female genital mutilation.
