This presentation is concerned with the Adolescent Development Programme, which aims to \"improve the quality of life of adolescent girls, by developing their skill set so they can live as confident, empowered, and self-reliant individuals contributing to a change in their own families and communities\". The research discussed evaluates the program implemented in Uganda and Tanzania. Questions asked include: (i) does entrepreneurial and life skills training improve economic well-being; (ii) do they aid female empowerment within the household?; (iii) do the results vary if microfinance is provided in additional to training?
