International Day of the Girl 2018 — Supporting Girls in Emergencies

Millions of girls have lost their homes. Don't let them lose their futures.

Refugees are uniquely vulnerable. But refugees girls doubly so. When extreme violence, hunger or climate drives them from their homes, they are the first to be trafficked for sex or child labor; the first to be exploited as tools of war; and the first to lose their childhoods. Meanwhile, they are the last to be fed, the last to be enrolled in school and, too often, the last to be valued.
