This photo was taken on August 2, 2009 with one of the several Window of Hope groups that I worked with in Namibia. Window of Hope is a UNICEF driven educational program made up of lifeskills and HIV/AIDS education workshops. We met twice a week for several hours to discuss things that many young students encounter throughout the world including self-esteem issues, gender issues, pregnancy and HIV/AIDS education. It was a safe-haven for students who could not speak openly due to traditional stigmas on feelings, and general fears or questions children have growing up in a rural hostel school. This group has just finished the program! - Peace Corps Education Volunteer Melissa Becci
