Stitching for Hope – Empowering Adolescent Mothers in Kakuma Refugee Camp

90% of youths who have been displaced by war or political conflicts experience conflict, poverty, and lack of opportunity. Girls, more than are boys who are displaced, are at risk of sexual exploitation and harassment. The confinement of refugee camps creates a negative view of the future for young people. In the Kakuma refugee camp and Kalobeyei settlement in Turkana West Sub-County, there are 197,341 refugees, out of which 16,880 are adolescent girls aged 12 to 17.
