Doing More, Doing Better: Social Protection for Adolescent Girls

This story shows the process of how to better include adolescent girls in the existing social protection framework in Bangladesh. Through evidence-based strategic advocacy, Save the Children has tried to better link with social protection systems and structures already in place in order to improve social protection for adolescent girls in Bangladesh. Save the Children has been implementing Child Sensitive Social Protection projects in Bangladesh since 2011 and is presently continuing its efforts to increase and improve social protection with the collaboration of WFP who supports MOWCA (Ministry of women and Children affairs) in administering VGD (Vulnerable Group Feeding) programme.
