The Girls Advocacy Alliance (GAA) is an initiative of Plan Nederland, Terre des Hommes Netherlands and Defence for Children - ECPAT Netherlands. The GAA is being led by Plan Nederland and implements a five-year programme that is being carried out in a strategic partnership with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The GAA Programme runs in 10 countries in Asia and Africa: Bangladesh, India, Nepal, the Philippines, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Uganda. In support of its efforts in these 10 countries, the programme is also securing the support
of the government and private sector in the Netherlands. It uses international accountability mechanisms, for instance the one of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The GAA Programme will run for five years, from January 2016 to December 2020. Download this booklet that summarises this programme.
