In her role as a Regional Program Officer for the English Access Microscholarship Program at FHI 360, MINN Program Manager Bridgette Springer co-authored a brief providing the latest evidence of the challenges that adolescent girls face to go to and stay in school as well as examples of FHI 360 programs that are successfully addressing the issues at stake.

We are proud to share this important work as we continue to honor International Women's Day throughout the month.
