Case Study of the Girls Network of the Luis Alfonso Velásquez Flores Child Movement (MILAVF)

Through its Child Rights Governance Program, Save the Children contributes to the fulfillment of children and adolescents’ rights by building their capacities to raise awareness among duty bearers and act collectively to create positive and lasting changes in their lives.

In Nicaragua, Save the Children supports the Girls’ Network of the Luis Alfonso Velásquez Flores Child Movement (MILAVF, in Spanish). This network promotes the organized participation of girls and adolescents in all matters affecting them by making girls join efforts in order to transform their reality marked by gender inequities.

This case study of the Girls’ Network covers the network's purpose, milestones, impacts on the lives of girl children and adolescents, best practices, and connection to Save the Children's theory of change.
