Measuring Impact in the AGI Pilots

The World Bank, Adolescent Girls Initiative

Through pilot interventions that are rigorously evaluated, the Adolescent Girls Initiative (AGI) is providing cross-country evidence on how programs can help smooth young women’s transition to productive work. Researchers and policymakers know a lot about the challenges faced by young women accessing the labor market, but much less about the types of programs that work best for helping them succeed. By measuring the impact of programs and delivering important lessons on design and targeting, the AGI evaluations aim to improve policy decisions around adolescent girl programming.

Every year, roughly 14 million girls are married before their 18th birthday. Instead of playing and learning, child brides as young as 10 years old are often subjected to a life of isolation, poor health and abuse. Child marriage not only violates a girl’s human rights, but it also stifles community, state and global development efforts to end poverty and gender inequality.
