Discussion
What is the Global Girls Innovation Programme?

The Global Girls Innovation Programme is not a fund but a coherent programme and a platform to generate significant new income across the global organization. The GGIP is known for
quality programming, innovation and results; the GGIP builds Plan’s reputation as a global thought leader in quality and effective programming on girls’ rights.
The GGIP is comprised of distinct flagship initiatives. These flagship initiatives are coherent with the Because I am a Girl campaign’s Theory of Change

What initiatives comprise the GGIP?
1. Child Marriage and Girls Schooling
18+ : Ending Child Marriage in Southern Africa
Asia Child Marriage Iniatiative (ACMI)

2. Promoting Equality and Safety in Schools
PEASS
Central American Programme

3. Because I am a Girl (BIAAG) Urban Programme: Safer Cities for Girls

4. Adolescent Girls: Active Citizens and Leadership
Girls Making Media

5. Economic Empowerment of Adolescent Girls

6. Adolescent Boys: Champions of Change

"I want to give my opinion to make changes in the future"
(A girl from Cairo, Egypt)
7. Where are the GGIP’S flagship initiatives located?
- The six flagship initiatives are located in the four Plan regions.
- The Urban Programme Safe and Inclusive Cities for Adolescent girls is located in five cities around the Global South, namely in Cairo, Kampala, Lima, Delhi, and Hanoi.
- The Early Marriage and Girls Schooling Asia Child Marriage Initiative takes place in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Cambodia, and Indonesia.
- Promoting Equality and Safety in Schools (PEASS) is implemented in Nepal, Cambodia, Pakistan, Indonesia and Vietnam.
- 18+: Ending Child Marriage in Southern Africa is implemented in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, and Malawi.
- Adolescent Boys: Champions of Change takes place in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Dominican Republic, as well as Germany.
- The Adolescent Girls Active Citizens and Leadership: Girls Making Media is located in Ghana, Sierra Leone and Liberia.
- The flagship Initiative on the Economic Empowerment of Adolescent Girls will take place on a global level in different regions.

11. What is the programme cycle of GGIP's
flagship initiatives?
- The development of projects within the GGIP framework follows four functional phases of Mobilization (Phase I), Foundation Building and Implementation (Phase II), M&E Results and Scaling Up (Phase III) and Sustainability (Phase IV), which are all critical for successful and innovative programming.
What kind of engagement modalities do the GGIP initiatives provide the COs with?
- The GGIP initiatives will provide the COs with the models and tools for conducting situational analysis, as well as the programme’s theory of change and training material that may be adapted to different contexts.
- Fundraising for the GGIP’s flagship initiatives requires a strategic and coordinated approach with a clear work plan and division of responsibilities and fundraising targets.
- While it is feasible for Plan International NOs to undertake the bulk of resource mobilization, ROs and COs are also encouraged to be vigilant for emerging opportunities and to connect with the appropriate NOs.

What does fundraising for the GGIP falgship initiatives require?
What are the investment opportunities and allocating resources and GADs?
- The GGIP operates like a basket funding mechanism where resources are pooled from different NOs towards a specific project. A top-line budget has been developed for each programme that is operational and provides investment options for NOs.
- Fundraising can be targeted at multiple levels, and utilised across Plan’s marketing and donor engagement efforts.
- Resources can be channelled by means of Individual General Agreements (GADs) for large sums as well as in small donations.

15. Is the fundraising target for the GGIP additional to the funds that have already been forecasted?
- The GGIP portfolio provides new programme funding opportunities which can be viewed as a product, as an alternative to existing girls funds or specific programmes/thematic areas.
- GGIP’s attractiveness in terms of content and innovative results monitoring can be used as a fundraising tool when looking for funding. Some offices will have a clear idea already of what they want to focus on.

16. Can the GGIP be offered to individuals/corporates as a thematic sponsorship product?
- Thematic sponsorship for individuals can be developed around the GGIP. If any NO decides to develop a product for its own market, the IH team will support its development.
17. If we have interest from a donor, what is the process to secure funding?
- When an NO identifies an opportunity for funding, the respective NO can contact Alexander Munive, the GGIP Programme Manager or any other of the flagship initiatives’ programme managers. The specific programme manager will coordinate with the region resource mobilization staff. For major grants a small task force to prepare the concept and proposals will be formed.
- Furthermore, all programmes have a GAD open for all.

18. Are the GGIP flagship initiatives ready to be funded yet? How will we be able to obtain information on them for proposals?
- Two initiatives from the Global Girls Innovation Programme (PEASS and BIAAG UP) were short-listed for submitting an application to the UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women in support of the programme. The PEASS proposal prepared in a collaborative effort with Plan Vietnam, Asia Regional Office, International Headquarters, Plan Finland and Plan France was successful and was awarded 1 million dollar grant.
- The 18+ programme and the Girls Making Media have proposal material already on PlanNet at BIAAG/Resources/fundraising proposals. There will also be a marketing brochure developed which can include translations.
Can a donor “restrict“ items? Will there be a running track of what is funded/available for funding?
- The Grant Tracking system plus the BIAAG programme funding tracking system (underway) provides with a quarterly overview of this.
What are the corporate audience's engagement modalities?
One of the most promising forms of collaboration and shared value creation in the GGIP programmes is corporate engagement. Based on the initial mapping of potential interest from corporates, we can say that the most promising projects to involve corporate partners include Because I am a Girl Urban Programme, Girls Making Media, and YEE and Gender. The Global Partnership Team in IH will identify and work with global partners. Specific benefit list for corporates will be prepared for each programme where there is potential for engaging corporates and field visits.
21. Who will be coordinating the reporting?
- A written progress report will be provided to different supporters on a bi-annual basis. Financial reports will be produced bi-annually. If a specific donor requires additional reports then the teams will accommodate such a request. An overall progress report (update) will be provided to the POLT on a bi-annual basis. An annual update will be provided to the GGERG.
- The GGIP is consistent in terms of timely, coherent and quality reporting to meeting accountability requirements for donors at all levels. This stream-lined reporting system will enable Plan offices to market projects and profile results in clear, unambiguous ways that clearly communicate our accountability of donor investment. This will also reduce the burden of reporting for NOs.

22. Who manages the GGIP?
- Oversight for the Global Girls Innovation Programme will be undertaken by the Programme Operations and Leadership Team (POLT). The programme will be managed by the GGIP Manager, under the direction of the Global Gender Equality Advisor.
- A Plan-wide Because I am a Girl team will provide integrated support, which includes: Regional Gender Specialists, the Global Gender Equality Reference Group (GGERG), regional Because I am a Girl Research and Programmes Assistants, the Global Because I am a Girl Communications and Marketing Manager; and the Global Because I am a Girl Advocacy, Fundraising, and Communications Coordinators.
- Monitoring and Evaluation will be supported by the Programme Quality Team with additional specific M & E technical expertise identified as needed.

How is the GGIP monitored and evaluated?
- Comprehensive and rigorous monitoring and evaluation strategies will be put into place to maximise the potential learnings from the different programmes.
- Ongoing monitoring and process evaluation will continue throughout the duration of the flagship initiatives.
- The data generated by the different countries will be comparable and will allow for global and sub-regional analysis in order to draw conclusions about what works.

Will there be a branding or some other significant way to make clear that projects are part of the GGIP?
- The GGIP has its own distinct branding which follows the standards set by the BIAAG campaign.

- The producing of marketing and communications material (such as videos and brochures) are developed on an on-going basis. At least twice a year the projects will produce marketing materials to be used by NOs and distributed to supporters. The intention is also to make the GGIP visible on Plan’s Because I am a Girl webpages.

How do Plan offices proceed with this opportunity?
- The GGIP will report on a quarterly basis on the opportunities for Plan Offices to become involved with the flagship initiatives. Updates will be available on PlanNet.

- If NOs or COs are interested in becoming involved, they can contact Alexander Munive, the GGIP Programme Manager, at Alexander.Munive@plan-international.org or any other of the managers of the flagship initiative.

Global Girls Innovation Programme
Many gains have been made towards gender equality over the past years. But everywhere that Plan works girls and women are still disproportionately affected by poverty, injustice and discrimination. They have lower social status than boys and men, less control over their lives, less decision-making power, and less access to services and economic resources.
As part of the Because I am a Girl campaign, Plan has had a distinct opportunity to leverage its expertise on gender equality, to reach within communities and influence key stakeholders through launching a global programme on girls’ empowerment and rights that is known for quality programming, innovation, and results. This has been branded as Plan’s Global Girls Innovation Programme (GGIP).
As a girl from Cairo, Egypt, states: “I want to give my opinion to make changes in the future.”
The initiatives were identified with the guidance of the Global Gender Equality Reference Group together with the Regional Offices teams. The guiding criteria for their selection were the following:
• Models that hold promise for significant expansion, replication or scale-up;
• Address current gaps in Plan’s Because I am Girl efforts;
• Validate Plan’s research on girls’ rights (Because I am Girl Reports);
• Reflect innovation, results and scale-ability;
• Focus on adolescence (10-18 years of age);
• Include robust action based research with potential for coherent Monitoring and Evaluation and joint learning;
• Coverage across multiple countries; and
• Coherence with Plan’s BIAAG theory of change.
Child Marriage and Girls Schooling
Child marriage is a global problem: 10 million girls under the age of 18 marry each year, some as young as age 8. In developing countries, 1 in every 3 girls marries before they are 18.

18+: Ending Child Marriages in Southern Africa and ACMI: Asia Child Marriage Initiative are two of Plan’s responses to this challenge.
Safe and Equatable Schools
School related gender-based violence (SRGBV) in the form of physical and sexual abuse, harassment, or bullying limits girls’ enrolment, undermines participation and achievement, and increases girls’ absenteeism and dropout rates.


The Promoting Equality and Safety in Schools Programme in Asia is the flagship initiative in the GGIP working on to ensure safe accountable, and child friendly schools free of gender based violence.
Safe and Inclusive Cities for Adolescent Girls
It is estimated that by 2030, approximately 1.5 billion girls will live in urban areas. Girls in cities contend with the duality of increased risks and increased opportunities.


The Because I am a Girl Urban Programme is a multi-country global programme aiming to build safe, accountable, and inclusive cities with and for girls in all their diversity.
Adolescent Girls: Active Citizens and Leadership
Girls’ holistic development requires that they should have access to safe spaces, peer networks, and mentoring that exposes young and adolescent girls to successful women in the communities.

Girls Making Media within the Adolescent Girls: Active Citizens and Leadership’ flagship initiative enables young people to act as advocates for gender equality through means of technology, arts and media.
Economic Empowerment of Adolescent Girls
Unemployment among youth is one of the most daunting challenges and the issue is a matter of urgency. Due to gender inequality, this situation is exacerbated for adolescent girls and young women.



As a response, Plan will build on its experience in establishing a unique model of Youth Economic Empowerment (YEE).
Adolescent Boys: Champions of Change on Gender Equality and Girls’ rights:
Plan aims to shift the agenda from boys and men as the source of gender problems, to boys and men as part of the solution.


Plan is implementing a pilot project called Champions of Change in Latin America and Europe to build the capacity of male youth as peer educators for gender equality and girls’ rights.

GGIP’s key elements continued: Innovation

• For Plan, innovation is the creative use of old or new ideas to address child rights violations and gender inequality.
• GGIP initiatives see innovation as a means of identifying promising solutions, sourcing the funding and scaling up the programmes.
• Innovations have also been introduced in partnerships, resource utilisation, policies, community engagement, and most of all, the mobilization of young women and men themselves. The process is the following:

GGIP’s key elements continued: Putting girls’ voices at the center

Girls are at the centre of the GGIP flagship initiatives. The GGIP has taken a pioneer role in promoting meaningful girls’ participation in programme design and research.
GGIP Programme feedback tools help to facilitate, quantify and amplify the voices of girls.

GGIP’s key elements continued: Gender transformative programming and working in the three dimensions of change
• All GGIP initiatives are gender transformative

• The programmes will aim to tackle the root causes of gender inequality and transform unequal gender power relations.

• Each of the programmes within the GGIP will work at three dimensions of change

GGIP’s key elements continued: Focus on Sustainable Girl’s Empowerment

The GGIP programmes will focus on promoting girls’ empowerment in a sustainable way by working to create simultaneous change in agency, relationships and structures.

Plan believes in gender-based empowerment; girls need to be empowered so that they can play an active role in the realisation of their rights.

GGIP’s key elements continued: CCCD Operational Standards

The flagship initiatives within the GGIP will be aligned with the Child Centred Community Development operational standards.
The CCCD standards set out how Plan works with others to enable more children to realise more of their rights.

GGIP’s key elements continued: Evidence based programming and strong Monitoring, Evaluation and Research

The GGIP aims to generate reserch-based evidence on the effectiveness of girls’ rights programming

The GGIP emphasizes programme-led research and the development of solid evidence around ‘what works’ in achieving girls’ rights

We do this through partnerships with reputable research institutions.

GGIP’s key elements continued: Geo-targeting

The GGIP flagship initiatives will be located in the areas where there are high concentrations of vulnerable girls, including subnational areas or programme units (PUs).

National level statistics, Plan’s country situation analysis, and baseline data will be used to target the most vulnerable girls. These analyses will help to define the magnitude of the problem (for example: levels of child marriage, or out of school ratios) and concentrate the work in the PUs which are most affected.

GGIP’s key elements continued: Model development

All the flagship initiatives within the GGIP will develop a model of intervention. GGIP models aim to be replicable and hold potential for scale-up.

Within the Global Girls Innovation Programme, a “model” is an intervention that can include different components or strategies.

GGIP’s key elements continued: Strong Partnerships

The GGIP aims to engage with world renowned academic institutions, NGOs and think tanks to partner with Plan in order to ensure the inclusion of latest academic debates. The GGIP already cooperates with a myriad of partners, both academic and thematic institutions, various networks and NGOs, as well as UN agencies and multilaterals.

The GGIP also places high value in working with local organizations in addition to global partners.

The GGIP follows Plan’s standards on partnerships

SAP and Plan Partnership

GGIP’s key elements continued: Strong Advocacy, Communication and Marketing Strategies

All of the GGIP’s flagship initiatives have strong advocacy efforts at the national, regional and global level

Quality and timely reporting are among the features of the GGIP.

The GGIP initiatives will have strong communication strategies targeting both communities and donors. This will entail producing marketing and communications material on an on-going basis.

GGIP’s Thematic Areas


Geographic location of the flagship initiatives

Child Marriage and Girls Schooling


Child marriage is a global problem: 10 million girls under the age of 18 marry each year, some as young as age 8.

Given the urgency, new and innovative approaches are required to accelerate social change to eliminate child marriages. 18+: Ending Child Marriages in Southern Africa and ACMI: Asia Child Marriage Initiative are two of Plan’s responses to this challenge.

Safe and Equitable Schools

School related gender-based violence (SRGBV) limits girls’ enrolment, undermines participation and achievement, and increases girls’ absenteeism and dropout rates.

The overarching goal under The Promoting Equality and Safety in Schools in Asia Programme is to ensure safe, accountable, and child friendly schools.

Promoting Equality and Safety in Schools (PEASS) is implemented in Nepal, Cambodia, Pakistan, Indonesia and Vietnam.

Adolescent Boys: Champions of Change on Gender Equality and Girls’ rights


The shifting agenda from boys and men as the source of gender problems to boys and men as part of the solution.

Plan is implementing a pilot project called Champions of Change in Latin America and Europe.

BIAAG Urban Programme


The BIAAG Urban Programme is a joint programme developed in partnership between Plan International, Women in Cities International (WICI), and UN-HABITAT.

BIAAG Urban Programme aims is to build safe, accountable, and inclusive cities with and for girls in all their diversity.

The expected outcomes of the BIAAG Urban Programme include:
Increased girls’ safety and access to public spaces
Increased girls’ autonomous mobility in the city
Increased girls’ active and meaningful participation in urban development and governance

Where are we working?
