    Building the agency and social capital of adolescent girls. Research has shown that almost 50 percent of survivors of sexual assault are under 18 years of age. Inequitable social norms often make it difficult for adolescent girls to realize their rights and protect themselves from harm. Displaced adolescent girls are particularly vulnerable. The Women's Refugee Commission is identifying and working with local women's and youth groups to design projects that will build the self-esteem, life skills and economic prospects for adolescent girls so that they can have more control over their lives and well-being. The project is being piloted in Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda and will identify the most successful ways for displaced girls to empower themselves.
