Boost Assistance for Migrant Girls, MEPs Say

The EU needs to step up assistance of millions of migrant girls inside Europe to protect them from abuse and promote their education, EPP Group MEPs said at a hearing on September 21. They are calling for a more effective European policy to help this largely silent population. During the hearing, the MEPs heard the testimony of a 17 year old from Guinea who has applied for asylum after fleeing her country. Available material includes edited stories in English and German.
