Adolescent Girls in Crisis: Voices from Beirut

This report explores the experiences of adolescent girls within two age brackets – 10-14 and 15-19 years – navigating the urban spaces of Beirut in order to access services and opportunities.

This research was conducted with girls from both host (Lebanese) and refugee (including Syrian and Palestinian) communities.

Lebanon has shown hospitality in accepting large refugee populations, however, there has been significant strain on the infrastructure and resources available to support these already vulnerable groups and inter-communal tensions can arise when different populations live together in over-crowded areas.

This report focuses on adolescent refugee girls living in Beirut. It seeks to amplify their voices and perceptions of their lives and communities, and presents their views on how the humanitarian sector might respond to the challenges they face.
