This study is among the first to rigorously demonstrate potential of life skills interventions to change key outcomes of adolescent girls living in contexts where girls and women continue to be caught in a vicious cycle of low levels of human capital, low labour force participation rate, low wages, low bargaining power within the household, early marriage and high fertility. The results of this trial suggest that life skills and empowerment interventions can have significant positive impacts on key outcomes such as schooling, marriage and mental health that have the potential to result in permanent improvements in the life trajectories of girls and their children.
