About the For the Girls Project
“Do you have a book with girls that look like us?”
Our team of female artists created a book specifically for Rohingya girls. 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.
Rohingya is an unwritten language. We collaborate with linguists and translators to create a written form of their Rohingya language. Because of this, it is essential that we go through a strict verification process to ensure that the vocabulary we use is the most-widely understood for the focus community.
