GirlForward Is Helping Young Women Refugees Thrive in Their Homes

You can help by donating to GirlForward on their website.

Or by advocating for the refugee communities near you.

Right now around the world, there are 25 million refugees. Half of them are not even 18 years old. These young people face many challenges — and finding a new home is just one of them. Refugees must also overcome language barriers, poverty, hunger, and a disrupted education. GirlForward mentors young women who are refugees or asylum seekers. It offers educational programs — focused on English literacy and empowerment — and safe spaces for these young women to connect with each other.
