Readings by Erica Chidi Cohen, Kate Johnston, Marisa Matarazzo, & Lilliam Rivera about a time they found hope.
We are in the midst of the biggest refugee crisis the world has ever seen. Over 60 million people worldwide have been forced to flee their homes. In conflict, girls are especially vulnerable to violence, isolation, and being kept out of school.
Girls who receive resettlement in the United States face huge challenges: poverty, language barrier, limited or disrupted education, isolation, and trauma. But when girls succeed, everyone benefits. That’s where GirlForward comes in.
This amazing organization has built a community of support dedicated to creating and enhancing opportunities for girls who have been displaced by conflict and persecution.
GirlForward supports girls through three core programs:
- A Mentoring Program that pairs girls with mentors to engage in “4W” activities (Wellness, Wisdom, Wallet and World).
- An Education Program that provides a space for girls to simultaneously build their English skills and succeed academically, while exploring their identities and learning about the world around them.
- A Safe Spaces Program that provides safe spaces for girls to explore their identities, connect with other girls, and access the resources they need.
