Umodzi Project: Men, Women, Boys and Girls in Alliance to Achieve Gender Equality

Region: Africa

Categories: Gender Norms and Sexual & Reproductive Health

This report presents the findings of the end-line evaluation of the Umodzi Project. Umodzi was a two-year action research project to test the effectiveness and scalability of a gender-synchronized, transformational approach that is integrated into existing school-based life skills and sexuality education programs for 10- to 19-year-old boys and girls. The purpose of Umodzi was to empower adolescent girls in rural communities in Central Malawi to exercise their sexual and reproductive health rights and, ultimately, achieve better life outcomes.
