Shifting Sands: Risk and Resilience among Refugee Youth in Cairo
The Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) conducted a one-year study on safe pathways to economic resilience for displaced young women and men (ages 15 to 24) living in urban settings. Information gathered from desk research, field assessments and consultations with displaced youth will build evidence to influence policy and practice to meet youths’ learning and earning needs.
This report focuses on key findings from a September 2012 field assessment in Cairo, conducted in partnership with the Psycho-Social Services and Training Institute of Cairo (PSTIC). The aim of the field assessment was to: identify those factors that increase the economic resilience of urban displaced youth; determine which existing services increase the academic and pre-employment skills and the economic resilience of urban displaced youth.
