You Go Girls

Remember way back when I reached out for financial help to make the latest Girls Leading Our World camp possible? You and many others chipped in (thank you!), and last week the camp became a reality in the beautiful Tierra Prometido camp in Paraguari, Paraguay.

Leticia and I traveled there from Yuty and upon arrival met 44 other girls and 20-some other Peace Corps volunteers with whom we’d spend the week.

The camp was a roaring success. The girls got to know each other and seemed to have so much fun.

We learned about healthy relationships and effective communication to get what you deserve while still being kind and respectful.

We discussed gender roles and what it means to their daily lives. We dreamed big and felt excited to be women in this neat-o world.

I’m certain each girl left camp to travel back to their home communities at the end of the week a little more confident, a little more empowered, and with a whole handful of new friends.

I’d even venture to say the same of us volunteers.
