The Adolescent Girls’ Advocacy & Leadership Initiative improves adolescent girls’ health, education, and livelihoods in Africa and Latin America. AGALI empowers leaders and organizations to advocate for girl-friendly laws, policies, and funding in Guatemala, Honduras, Liberia, Malawi, and Ethiopia. Through capacity building workshops, seed grant funding, and technical assistance, AGALI has created a global movement of leaders and organizations advocating for girls.

AGALI’s impacts include the passage of national laws and implementation of programs that protect girls from violence, increase their access to education, health services, and economic opportunities, and empower young women to develop their own solutions to the obstacles they face. AGALI’s partners have provided direct training and services to over 40,000 adolescent girls and their allies, in addition to engaging 600 grassroots organizations in girl-centered advocacy efforts.

AGALI is a project of the Public Health Institute.
