Deadline: September 5, 2016
In partnership with Every Woman Every Child, Positive Action for Girls & Women is pleased to announce the launch of the Empowering Girls in Emergency Settings (EmGEmS) Challenge Prize to address the sexual and reproductive health (SRH) needs of adolescent girls in emergency settings. It is recognised that in emergency settings girls are particularly vulnerable to violence, rape, lack of privacy and often forego education as well as access to health services.
The EmGEmS Challenge Prize is seeking innovations (either conceptual or proven) that help girls meet their sexual and reproductive rights and health while leveraging their own agency and enabling them to gain confidence, learn and be empowered. This could entail technological, service or activity-based innovations.
- A prize of $100,000 will be awarded
- Open to a programme that supports adolescent girls in being empowered and educated when it comes to their sexual and reproductive health needs and rights by building self esteem and confidence through technological, service or activity-based innovations.
