Voices for Change (V4C) was an innovative programme aiming to work at scale to strengthen the enabling environment for young women’s empowerment in Nigeria. The programme worked across four states – Enugu, Lagos, Kaduna and Kano – and specifically targeted young men and women aged 16-25 with a range of interventions designed to inspire deep-seated personal transformation on gender equality and to diffuse these changes among a wider population. It was implemented over four years from October 2013 to September 2017.
As an innovative approach, V4C used a range of quantitative and qualitative tools to track results, create an evidence base for strategic mid-programme adjustments, and to lay the foundation for understanding outcomes. This paper aims to bring those tools together to present an overview of the programme’s outcomes and draw out learning pertinent to other programmes with similar objectives.
