/echo/file/turkey-accompanying-refugee-girls-their-journey-adulthood_enTurkey: accompanying refugee girls on their journey to adulthood

Do we know what refugee teenage girls go through, what they need or think of?

With EU humanitarian funding, the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) provides psychosocial sessions for refugee girls in Turkey and accompany them on their way to adulthood.

These sessions inform them on physical and emotional health, gender based violence, leadership and safety.

This support also helps young women build life-skills to make safe and educated choices for themselves.
