The Power to Lead Alliance (PTLA) is a three-year (2008 /2011) project implemented by CARE in six countries: Honduras, Yemen, India, Malawi, Tanzania, and Egypt. PTLA was part of a larger girls’ education programme, focusing on basic education (access and quality), and gender equality. The programme aimed to promote leadership skills among girls aged between 10 and 14 from vulnerable communities. It used extracurricular activities, social networks, and civic action. In practice, more than 30 per cent of project participants were male. Working with younger adolescent boys provided an opportunity to pilot activities aimed at changing gender norms and attitudes early in their lives.
