Description

The Growth and Changes books are a series of books created by Grow and Know which aim to empower and teach 10-14 year old girls about their changing bodies. The books are grounded in the local social, cultural, and economic context, and capture the real perspectives of young people growing up today. Young peoples’ stories are incorporated alongside factual and appropriate guidance on the physiological and emotional changes of puberty and maturation. The books have been implemented in Tanzania, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Ghana and Madagascar (Pakistan is underdevelopment) and are written in local languages in order to be accessible to young women.
