Puberty Education and Menstrual Hygiene Management

There are 1.8 billion young people in the world today, half of whom are very young adolescents (VYA), ages 10 to 14. Girls and boys in this age range are at the threshold of young adulthood. This transition may be the most important journey in their lives, especially for girls.

Save the Children’s experience and research have consistently demonstrated that if VYA girls are supported by teachers, schools, peers,
families and communities, they stay in school, delay marriage and childbirth, acquire strong life and livelihood skills and improve their prospects for better health and well-being.

As a global leader in world-class development programming, Save the Children aims to reach VYA girls with the support they need in school, from their families and from their communities. This document presents Save the Children's approach to VYA girls' education.
