School closures are increasing girls risks of child marriage, domestic violence and sexual violence.

Large increases in young pregnancies are leading to unsafe, backdoor abortions which are frequently resulting in death.

Lack of access to radios, television, computers and internet is leaving many students unable to engage in remote learning.

Access to period products has become even lesser than before.
