Supporting the empowerment of adolescent girls in India

October 2018 - A key goal of the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) is to assist the poorest and most marginalised, especially women and girls, such that they achieve a level of self-reliance and improved quality of life. For the past 40 years that AKF has been working in India, it has sought to support the economic and social empowerment of women.

AKF’s work on adolescent girls’ empowerment seeks to ensure that they have the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values to help them interact effectively with the world, and contribute to society and have access to livelihood opportunities that would provide them economic well-being and dignity.
