Empowering Ethiopia's Women


The MDG-F is helping empower girls like these in Ethiopia’s Tigray and Amhara regions, where only a third of adult women can read and write, and few have access to adequate health, social and financial services. A joint UN programme is targeting 100,000 adolescent girls and women with literacy training, business skills and access to credit to increase their economic opportunities, as well as HIV/AIDS and reproductive health education.
