About the Grant

GRL Power’s goal is to equip a group of adolescent girls with the knowledge and skills to conduct qualitative research, to empower the group to build upon efforts to create safe public spaces for girls and women by designing and undertaking their own research and to share these learnings and the girl-led research process with INGOs, national NGOs, UN agencies, the Jordanian government and universities.

The objectives of the grant are three-fold:

1. To establish and build the skills, knowledge and capacity of a group of girl researchers who can provide research services to the broader development community.
2. Demonstrate the capacity of adolescent girls as researchers and the impact of investing in their empowerment.
3. Document and share lessons around the design and measurement of the impact of the role of adolescent girls in mobilizing communities to foster safer public spaces and reduce the potential for gender-based violence (GBV).
