Part of Edelgive Framework Agreement


Empowering adolescent girls to become change makers


Milaan wants to overcome traditional role models for adolescent girls in rural India, expand their personal development opportunities, and build them as leaders and change makers in their communities. Dalyan contributes to scaling Milaan’s Girl Icon Fellowship program, a two-year leadership training for selected adolescent girls, comprising a learning grant, residential capacity building and individual mentoring. Each girl shall form a peer group of 20 girls in her community and build a network of advocacy for girls. Based on the program’s success so far Edelgive Foundation wants to strengthen Milaan’s organisation with increased outreach in several states.
