Abstract

This chapter describes the establishment and achievements of a Girl-Led Research Unit in Kinshasa, involving 15 Congolese girls and young women with diverse backgrounds and life experiences. It discusses the benefits and challenges of a peer research approach in a context in which girls and young women navigate precarious circumstances to survive economically and socially. It also describes the longer-term impacts of these research experiences on policy and practice within the Democratic Republic of Congo.
