Improving Adolescent Reproductive Health and Nutrition through Structural Solutions in West Hararghe Zone, Oromia, Ethiopia (Abdiboru Project) is funded by Bill and Melinda GatesFoundation and implemented by CARE/ Ethiopia. The project is a 5-year (2016 – 2020) intervention initiative focusing on girls aged 10-14. The project aims at empowering adolescent girls through applying improved individual level and structural level social interventions that are likely to improve the reproductive health, nutrition and education attainment of adolescent girls. The ultimate aim is to establish a cost effective model that can be applied at scale. In order to achieve this goal, the project focuses on ensuring adolescent girls have the agency to control decisions that affect their own lives and influence the local, regional and national development agenda, improving the accountability and support to adolescent girls of the government's local and district health, education and women affairs institution and strengthen social and cultural norms and values that protect and prevent discrimination against adolescent girls.
