The other weekend myself along with 6 other volunteers had a meeting in Kaya, a larger city an hour north of me. The topic: Camp GLOW.

Camp GLOW (Girls Leading Our World) was established by Peace Corps Volunteers in Romania 15 years ago. Since 1995, volunteers in 60 countries have established similar programs to promote the empowerment of women and girls. This year PC Burkina Faso is taking on the challenge the difference for us is we have decided to included boys as well and not just hold one camp but 2. One in Kaya and the other will be in the South-West. Myself along with these 6 other volunteers are in charge of all aspects of the camp including recruitment, training of trainers, finding funding, publicity and of course holding the camp itself. One week for girls and the next for boys. We are still in the early stages being that the camp will take place in June but I am VERY excited and will keep you all updated on the progress!
