The study took place in 1996 and delves into the experiences of girl-children victims of maltreatment, exploitation and other forms of abuse. The stories included are pieced together from their narrative as well as the testimonies of the caregivers and agencies that are providing them shelter.

The study underscores that there are gender-specific needs, issues and problems that need to be addressed when conducting studies on this specific age group. This research is an attempt to piece together information on the plight of girl-children, especially those in vulnerable circumstances.
