The Growth and Economic Opportunities for Women (GrOW) research program is a collaborative initiative involving IDRC, the United Kingdom's Department for International Development, and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
The Global Adaptation Research Program (now known as the Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asia or CARIAA) is a new partnership between IDRC and the UK's Department for International Development.
This project seeks to amplify the results and impact of the ADOS program by supporting five youth organizations working to improve the sexual and reproductive health of adolescent girls at the national level in Senegal.
Unpaid care work, which is disproportionately carried out by women because of unequal gender and social norms, is often invisible and undervalued in policy and economic contexts despite its fundamental importance to the functioning of society.
The overall objective of this project is to encourage the use of research results and innovations generated through the implementation of the program “Better sexual and reproductive health and rights for adolescent girls in Senegal” to ensure better sexual and reproductive health of adolescent girls and to effectively protect them from gender-based violence.
