How friendly are African governments towards girls?

 

20 November 2020

The 6th edition of The African Report on Child Wellbeing is a unique and pioneering report that provides a comprehensive and continental review and analysis on the state of girls in Africa. It assesses the performance of African governments in fulfilling their obligations to girls using a robust statistical framework – The Girl-Friendliness Index (GFI). It also relays the voices of girls sought through targeted multi-country qualitative studies carried out in selected countries across Africa.
