Brave Girl Rising:
The Crisis of Displacement

Brave Girl Rising tells the story of Nasro, a 17-year-old Somali girl living in Dadaab, one of the world’s largest refugee camps. Nasro faces daily threats to her well-being. Food is scarce, water is scarcer, and danger is abundant. School is inconsistent—sometimes available, sometimes not—and for many, the perils of even getting to school are enough to stop going.  Nasro is surviving by sheer will and determination. School is her lifeline and, she believes, the only hope for a better future. The odds are nearly impossible, but she is fierce, and she is brave.
