Stand up for Lost Girls

16.5 million girls have been forced to leave their homes because of conflict.


In conflict and refugee situations, girls are more likely to be caught in a vacuum of violence, exploitation and early marriage.

These girls are too often invisible

Their voices lost

Stand up for #LostGirls

The world is becoming a more treacherous place.
In the last five years, 15 conflicts have broken out. From Syria, to Yemen, to the worsening conflict in the Lake Chad Basin, we are now seeing people on the move on a scale that is almost unfathomable.

Over 65 million people have been forced to leave their homes in the world right now- just over the population of the UK.

Behind the numbers are people with names.
Over half of them are children.

16.5 million girls have been forced to leave their homes because of conflict or persecution.

Being a girl in a refugee situation is tough. It means you are more likely to be married off early, more likely to find yourself having a child while still a child, more likely to drop out of school, more likely to suffer from violence and abuse, to be the last to be fed, the last to be heard.
In conflict and refugee situations, girls are more likely to be caught in a vacuum of violence, exploitation and early marriage.

They are often in exile for 17, even 20 years.

These girls are too often invisible. Their voices lost.

Stand up for lost girls.

Tell the world that you stand up for #LostGirls of the refugee crisis.
