In Ethiopia, GAGE is carrying out research in rural and urban communities in the Oromia, Amhara, Afar regions and the Dire Dawa City Administration, with a sample of 6700 adolescents. Our research is being carried out in partnership with a multi-disciplinary team of researchers, including from Addis Ababa University, PSI and Quest Research, Training and Consultancy.
Our evidence is generating answers to the question of ‘what works’ to transform the lives of adolescent girls and boys, and fast-track social change. GAGE research involves the most vulnerable adolescents, including internally displaced persons (IDPs), adolescents with disabilities, those out of school, married girls and adolescent mothers, as well as young people living in remote rural communities.
These results will support policy and programme actors to more effectively reach adolescent girls and boys to advance their wellbeing and better identify what is needed to meet the Sustainable Development Goals, including the commitment to Leave No One Behind.
GAGE completed the collection of its baseline data in 2018 and conducted several validation workshops with key government stakeholders in December 2018 in Addis Ababa. The GAGE programme and the Ministry of Women, Children and Youth would now like to invite your organisation to send a representative to discuss the policy and programming implications of our baseline research findings.
