Project Title: Pathways to Choice: Delaying Marriage through Girls’ Education in Rural Niger
Location: Niger
Grant Amount: $49,999 (over two years)



Mission of Venture Strategies for Health and Development
Venture Strategies for Health and Development aims to help stabilize global population by securing women’s freedom to choose their family size.

Project Summary
The purpose of the project is to transform girls’ lives by providing safe space clubs to adolescent girls in rural Niger, dramatically improving education outcomes and delaying marriage and childbearing.

Why We Love This Project
We love this project which is grounded in proven field tested methodologies with its focus on vulnerable, isolated rural adolescent girls of the Hausa minority in rural Niger. This project involves the entire community in supporting safe spaces for adolescent girls to develop leadership skills, gain knowledge about reproductive health, and receive mentoring to continue their education and increase their self-confidence and self-esteem.
