Adolescent girls are on the move in the developing world. The Population Council's report, Girls on the Move, is the first of its kind to examine the social and economic drivers of internal migration for adolescent girls in developing countries, and the links between migration, risk, and opportunity. The report finds that migration can—provided necessary safety nets and resources are in place—be largely a positive experience for girls, and present them with new opportunities.
Girls on the Move was supported by the Nike Foundation and the United Nations Foundation and is the sixth report in the Coalition for Adolescent Girls' Girls Count series.
