Our longitudinal research


GAGE is a nine-year (2015-2024) mixed methods longitudinal research and evaluation programme following the lives of adolescents in diverse developing country contexts. GAGE is generating new evidence on ‘what works’ to help reduce poverty and exclusion for adolescent girls and boys and fast-track social change for young people, their families and communities. The programme is funded by UK aid from the UK government.
