    What is Girl Centered Design?

    Girl-Centred Design is an approach that provides skills, knowledge and tools for practitioners to place adolescent girls at the Centre of program design and implementation. Getting adolescent girls and young women involved throughout program life cycles can improve their sense of agency and voice and program outcomes. Too often, girls are not consulted in implementing programs that were designed to benefit them. This results in unsustainable or ineffective program models. By finding the most marginalised girls, listening to their voices and seeing things from their perspective, practitioners are able to design impactful programs and services that can benefit the girls.
