Activated by then 18 year old Sumaili, a girls group has formed in an overcrowded refugee camp for civil war refugees to alleviate hopeless poverty, malnutrition and senseless violence against girls in camp.
They are awesome, since the refugee camp crisis is humanity’s biggest escalating challenge and failure, and this initiative – amplified by YL’s programs around a LearnSpace and global school partnerships – is a replicable model for millions of youth trapped in refugee camp lives in a world with asylum fatigue and escalating economic, ecological and cultural crisis.
They deserve our help since all of us have superpowers to get this unique youth-led success story in refugee camps into the hands of citizens, teachers, students and journalists to bring SDGs and global issues to life and give people the power to do something truly relevant about it for the benefit of millions.
We seek to
help them achieve their goals for permaculture and girl safety + full spectrum youth leadership to boost campaigns, build skills and ways out by forming bonds with global schools, student clubs and citizen groups, to receive guests and build bridges to a full life outside the camp.
