The Survival Girls are a female performance group founded by Survival Girls author Ming Holden in 2011 in Nairobi, Kenya, to bring together young female refugees in urban areas and empower them with art, awareness, and counseling. Most of the women in the group are victims of rape, assault, and other violence. They range from age 15 to 30, and are from the Congo, Rwanda, and Burundi. This book is about them, and proceeds and donations will benefit their tuition at university in Nairobi, where they hope to study to become counselors.
