GirlForward is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in Chicago that provides adolescent refugee girls with individual mentorship, educational programs and leadership opportunities.

“To me, GirlForward means many things. We have our mentors who help us with school, finding jobs – everything. And we have friends from different cultures and religions. We don’t fight. We love each other and help each other.” – Rebecca, 16, Sudan.
