In an effort to advance girls’ education in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), The Center for Universal Education (CUE) at the Brookings Institution, a leading policy center focused on universal quality education in the developing world, has begun to explore the critical gaps in girls’ transitions. CUE asked the Capstone team to assist in the CHARGE Working Group on Transitions and CUE’s exploration of the critical gaps in girls’ transitions by conducting case study analyses of the mechanics, processes, and outcomes of girls’ programs that aim to transition girls to higher levels of education and to the workforce within Akilah Institute in Rwanda and EconoWin in Jordan. This report proposed the components that make for an effective transitions program, while also understanding how these components interact to contribute  to  positive  transitions  outcomes for  girls and young  women. It also provided recommendations for how Akilah Institute and EconoWin can better their programs to increase positive outcomes for girls and young women.
