Investing in Girls: Q&A with Margaret Bolaji

We’re kicking off a new series featuring the reigning 120 Under 40 family planning leaders with a Q&A with Margaret Bolaji, a Nigerian youth activist for girls’ health and rights.

Margaret, a fierce advocate for girls’ education, mentors adolescents from rural communities where early pregnancies keep many girls from school. She boosts their literacy, sexual and reproductive health and rights and life skills to empower them to take more control of their reproductive health.

120 Under 40, organized by the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, highlights the “positive disruptions” made by young leaders in family planning. GHN will feature a different winner each Thursday for the next few weeks.
