Girls in Crisis: Venezuelan Girls' Voices from the Migration
Venezuela faces a severe crisis which has forced 5.5 million Venezuelans leaving their country. Colombia, Ecuador and Peru are among the states that have welcomed most displaced Venezuelans. This crisis has been particularly affecting displaced girls, adolescents and women. They are at risk of sexual and other forms of gender-based violence, labour and sexual exploitation and they often lack access to basic health, sexual and reproductive health, education, jobs and housing services.
On 21 June 2021, the EU Office of Plan International and the Permanent Representation of Sweden to the European Union are inviting you to a virtual event that will share exclusive insights on the upcoming report on “Girls in Crisis” within the Venezuelan crisis. The research presents the needs, risks and expectations of Venezuelan refugee and migrant girls and adolescents in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru, all with one goal: to amplify their voices and their perception of life under the crisis.
