What The Girls Say: The Difficult Journey Home

What The Girls Say: The Difficult Journey Home centers on the story of one girl and her journey from being recruited, life within the armed group, the stigma experienced back home and finally how she returned to school and received the help she needed to be better accepted into her community.

Watch the animation to hear Justine's story brought to life.

What The Girls Say was kindly commissioned by Child Soldiers International and in partnership with Education Above All.
