CAAGI information sheet

Collective Action for Adolescent Girls Initiative (CAAGI) is a Christian Aid funded programme that aims to improve significantly the choices and opportunities available for adolescent girls in Northern Nigeria to live productive and meaningful lives.

It seeks to change individual and societal behaviours, attitudes and perceptions that hamper the opportunities of girls, using the strong influence of religion through religious leaders as enablers to facilitate this change.

It is focused on addressing practices around early marriage, lack of access to education and economic empowerment for adolescent girls.

CAAGI is working with religious and traditional leaders to influence societal and individual behaviours and attitudes so that girls like Aisha, a 20- year-old mother of two can have improved choices and opportunities available to them.
