About the Programme 

In 2022, the Mastercard Foundation in partnership with BRAC International (BI) will be announcing an  initiative that will create a positive and measurable impact for 1.2 million adolescent girls and young women  and 9.5 million people across seven countries in East and West Africa, including Ghana, Kenya, Liberia,  Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, and Uganda. 

There is mounting urgency to support adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) living in poverty, which  has been further amplified by the global pandemic. Through this partnership, scalable economic  development approaches will be delivered in communities to foster the agency and voice of AGYW. They  will have the opportunity to fulfill their aspirations, achieve sustainable livelihoods, and engage in advocacy  issues. 

BRAC International will implement an integrated and holistic model to address the various life cycles of a  young woman living in poverty, ensuring she is able to transition safely from adolescence to adulthood. She  will be equipped with the appropriate skills, tools, and access to finance to effectively exercise her agency  and build a fulfilling and productive livelihood.
