We offer this select library of reports, curricula, and other resources to support learning and technical capacity-building in the four areas of focus for WomenStrong International’s Learning Lab: girls’ education and empowerment, women’s health, prevention of violence against women and girls, and economic opportunity. Our goal is to help move practical tools and resources into the hands of those who can best use them — bold, community-based organizations striving to advance progress and momentum for women and girls.
