AGALI partners with Girl Up to empower young women like this one in Malawi.

Becca Napoli and mother-daughter duo Ann and Liz Satter join us to discuss the work they and others are doing locally in partnership with the United Nations Foundation’s Girl Up campaign to try to improve girls’ lives in Malawi. Denise Dunning, founder of the Adolescent Girls’ Advocacy and Leadership Initiative (AGALI), also joins us to talk about the challenges facing Malawian girls and what her organization is doing to combat those problems with help from organizations like Girl Up.
