(14.) The UNGEI archives are available online by date, theme, region, or title from 1999–2014. I reviewed all included documents for this period. The UNFPA electronic archive begins in 2000 and includes all documents to the present day, searchable by thematic area, publication type, or title. I selected the thematic categories “gender equality,” “human rights,” “ICPD,” “population,” and “development” and reviewed all available findings. The UNDP website, which does not specify the parameters of its archive by date, offers the option of sorting documents by theme or through an open search. I ran open searches for the following keywords: girls’ education, the girl effect, population and education, girls’ education and fertility, and women’s empowerment. UNESCO offers a database of resources called UNESDOC, although many sources are only accessible in physical form at the organization’s IBE library in Geneva. Others link from UNES-DOC to scholarly journals or the World Bank. I ran both basic and advanced keyword searches for population and women’s empowerment, as each term yielded thousands of results from advanced search options. Finally, UNICEF’s Office of Research offers a basic search by keyword, an advanced search by thematic area, author, or geographic region, as well as the option to browse publications by year (between 1989 and 2014). I used the same keyword search at UNICEF as at UNESCO for all available resources. Lastly, I used documents from the UN Women website that holds documents focused on women from the inception of the CSW in 1944 until the present, including products of the UN Conferences on Women.

(1.) With a few exceptions, the Nike Foundation phased out NGO partnerships as their grant agreements ended, often after three years, and they did not issue additional rounds of RFPs. The Grassroots Girls Initiative, comprised of a group of organizations committed to working with girls on the ground, including Global Fund for Children, Global Fund for Women, Mama Cash, American Jewish World Service, Firelight Foundation, and EMpower, is a notable exception that has received funding during the duration of the Nike Foundation’s portfolio on adolescent girls.

(4.) “The Girl Effect Accelerator provided information on what investment meant in this context: The term patient capital has become synonymous with investing across early stage ventures in emerging markets. Although important, we also believe it is critical to make ‘impatient capital’ available to these same companies. To this end we have launched a 500k working capital fund designed to provide capital in the form of a short-term debt to the ten ventures who participate in the Girl Effect Accelerator. It will play a crucial role in providing the participating ventures with fast acting, low-interest rate, non-collateral tied, and immediately available debt financing. Unreasonable Capital will also be committing to invest into each venture and we are hosting a private investor gathering designed to align our select companies with some of the world’s top performing investment funds and foundations,” Girl Effect Accelerator, accessed September 15, 2017, http://girleffectaccelerator.com/.
