The Filles Éveillées (Girls Awakened) program was designed to increase social networks and skill building among migrant adolescent girls in domestic service in urban Burkina Faso. The program was piloted over two cycles: 2011–2012 in Bobo Dioulasso, and 2012–2013 in Ouagadougou and Bobo Dioulasso. According to this evaluation report, process evaluation was conducted between the two cycles to assess program effectiveness and suggest improvements for program structure, implementation, and content before launching the second cohort. Changes resulting from this process evaluation included simplifying the sexual and reproductive health program content; reordering the modules and introducing financial capabilities earlier so that girls have ample opportunities to practice savings behavior; and reinforcing the importance of sessions that bring community service providers—such as nurses and financial service providers—to the girls to teach them about local resources. These course corrections likely enhanced the effectiveness of the Filles Éveillées program for the 2012–2013 cohort.
