Promoting Opportunities for Young Women & Girls

97% of young women & girls took an active role in household decisions, compared to only 14% at the start.

The Promoting Economic Opportunity for Young Women and Girls project launched in December 2014 to transform the lives of 150 indigenous young women and girls between the ages of 10 and 23 in six rural communities of Lachuá, Guatemala.

This project was the first to integrate Trickle Up’s traditional Graduation Approach with trainings on sexual and reproductive health to provide young women with critical information and reduce the rate of early pregnancy.
