In 2012, MWAI revised and developed a Gender Equitable Index (GEI) and a Youth Leadership Index (YLI) and piloted Common Indicator Framework items for CARE USA. The Common Indicator Framework measures Attainment, Equality, Quality, and Empowerment in ducation. MWAI consultants, with CARE staff, piloted the instruments in Bangladesh, India, and Burundi with over 3,000 participants. MWAI assessed the reliability of each instrument in the various cultural contexts and made recommendations for instrument utilization in the field. As a result, numerous organizations and individuals have begun to use the GEI and the YLI in adolescent programming in order to assess impact of gender equity and youth leadership projects.
