GAGE consortium

GAGE is partnering with the Center for Research on Environment, Health and Population Activities (CREHPA) and the Nepal Institute for Social and Environmental Research (NISER) to study the impact of two adolescent empowerment programmes: Room to Read’s Girls Education Programme and World Vision’s ‘Rupantaran’ programme.

GAGE is also funding a study to look at the drivers and experiences of adolescent girls involved in the adult entertainment sector. GAGE research involves vulnerable adolescents, including adolescents who are out of school, married adolescents and adolescents engaged in commercial sex work.

We work in six districts (out of 77) through these different studies; Nuwakot and Tanahun to study the Girls Education Programme; Morang to study the Rupantaran programme; and Kathmandu, Jhapa and Sunsari to study adolescents in the adult entertainment sector. Both CREHPA and NISER have long-standing engagements with the government and work closely to influence policies and programmes for adolescent well-being.
