Join us on 14 October as we chat with social anthropologist Madu Dissanayake. We would discuss the choices adolescent girls and young women should make in order to make the change they want to see in their lives and communities. 

Thoughts, comments and how to-s (TCAH)

How can parents guide and advise adolescent girls and young women to make choices to be the change they want to see in their lives? How would you grow a change-maker? 
Share your TCAH on our social media platforms and we will include them in our discussion on the 14th.
