Executive Summary

“This book is an attempt to tell the untold story of the millions of refugee girls whose voices are almost never heard. While much of the refugee experience for girls is dif cult and depressing to read about, refugee girls are resilient and strong. Their lives are not easy, yet they strive to make the most of the opportunities they are offered.”
