By girls, for girls.

For the Girls: Afghan Version was created by our team of female content creators, many of whom are refugees themselves. This book provides Afghan adolescent girls with a resource to prompt important conversations regarding women’s health.

Along with basic health practices, the book encourages creativity, innovation, and community-based work throughout all phases of life. The picture-based approach is designed to encourage girls to ask questions and spark conversation among their peers, regardless of their literacy level.

We recommend pairing this book with our Teacher Guide: For the Girls to receive lesson plan ideas, discussion topics, and group activities.

Behind the Scenes: Book Development

~ Lesvos, Greece ~

It appears simple - but is far from it. Behind a page of cartoons is hours of research, miles of travel, endless cups of tea, and numerous iterations of artwork and translations.

Simple as it may appear, the work of creating this content has layers of depth, years of relationships built, and countless stories woven throughout the pages.
