Girls in crisis
Around the world, more than 500 million adolescent girls are living in countries affected by conflict and humanitarian crises. In these environments, girls face increased challenges, including limited access to education, increased domestic work, the risk of gender-based violence and exploitation, child marriage and early pregnancy.
Through our policy and research work, we’re highlighting the voices of girls growing up in crises, whose unique situation is often overlooked, to ensure they get the protection and support they need.
