This is the report from the 'Video Girls for Change' initiative - which supported adolescent girls, who are part of empowerment projects, to take a leading role in evaluating girl programming. It contains the outcomes and key learning from this programme that was funded by the Nike Foundation and ran in parallel in two countries with two different program implementers: Population Council Guatemala and BRAC Uganda.
In this news update you'll find a visual explaining how we combine Participatory Video with the Most Significant Change technique, a website with all the results from the Video Girls for Change initiative - a capacity building and evaluation process with adolescent girls in Guatemala & Uganda - as well as videos, photostories and visuals from projects and presentations we've done in the last months. Hoping you enjoy this as our new years gift.
