The overall goal of the program is to help vulnerable adolescent girls in Zambia build their social, health and economic assets. Specifically, in order to build girls' economic assets, they participate in training sessions on financial education, as well as have the opportunity to open savings accounts. The project is led by the Population Council, in partnership with the Young Women's Christian Association of Zambia (YWCA Zambia), the National Savings and Credit Bank (NatSave), Making Cents International, and the Government of the Republic of Zambia.
