Social Protection Program

The AGH Social Protection Program focuses on balancing power between genders and social community structures and systems that promote national development. We work to advance adolescent girls rights, and support marginalized and vulnerable populations (particularly adolescent girls and young women with disability) through the provision of psychosocial support to girl victims of violence, those with disability and implement a range of interventions geared at preventing transactional sex between young adolescent girls and older men. AGH also implements a social accountability intervention to support out of school adolescent girls and young women to engage in decent work for employability and poverty reduction.  Under this program, the goals are: Firstly; empower girls and young women and shift social and cultural norms toward the prevention of gender based violence/Disability Inclusion, transactional sex, HIV and unintended pregnancies among girls and young women. Secondly; promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, self-employment, and decent work for out of school adolescent girls and young women.
