Washington, D.C. 4 September 2018 — Refugee women and girls are amongst the most vulnerable of migrants and displaced individuals around the world. Every day, refugee girls face barriers to education caused by poverty, cultural norms and practices, poor infrastructure, violence, and fragility. Keeping girls in school will not only keep them healthy, safe, and offer them the opportunity for a better life, but it will also have many benefits for societal development.

JRS fully incorporates this understanding into its educational structure and curriculum and takes extra steps to monitor girls' well-being to ensure they stay in school. We offer literacy classes to encourage girls to attend secondary school and take leadership roles in their communities, as well as teach specific programs such as Menstrual Hygiene Management that provides girls with health education and hygiene kits to give them the proper knowledge to stay healthy. 

We invite you to learn more about refugee girl's education, share stories of why refugee education is so important, and give the gift of education through our online Global Education Initiative Gift Catalog. You can purchase items like a new pair of school shoes for a refugee child for $25 or provide a whole classroom with textbooks for $100. With your support, we can give more students a seat in the classroom.
