Adolescent girls are one of the most at-risk populations at times of emergencies. When schools close and access to safe spaces and services decrease, girls’ vulnerability is increased. This frequently leads to significant growth in gender-based violence, a rise in cases of early marriage and unwanted pregnancies, and higher dropout rates from school. 

This paper explores the links between girls’ life skills intervention in emergencies and their return to education post-crisis and prevention of unwanted pregnancies and early marriage.
