MSH worked with school, community, and government partners to lead a pilot intervention with 30 adolescent girls (ages 13 to 19) at Government Day Secondary School, Tal in Billiri, Gombe State in northeast Nigeria for six months from 2014 to 2015.

This program, known as the Amdo Health Club (“Amdo” means love in the local dialect) had a far reaching impact on the girls; for many it not only changed their lives, but also the lives of their sisters, friends, households, and communities.
