BRAC USA and NoVo Foundation have announced a $5 million, five-year partnership to support the education and empowerment of adolescent girls through BRAC programs in multiple countries, starting in South Sudan and Afghanistan. Targeting girls in hard-to-reach communities, the partnership will scale up several of BRAC’s existing education and empowerment programs, including primary schooling for younger girls and safe spaces for adolescents, from 2013 to 2018.
The NoVo-BRAC partnership will build on and add to a rich body of research that demonstrates which youth interventions work – and which do not – in specific contexts. Over the partnership’s five years, research and evaluation will be led by BRAC’s independent East Africa Research and Evaluation Unit, based in Kampala, Uganda, and operated in partnership with The MasterCard Foundation.
