Peace Corps Volunteer Ginger Anderson works with participants at Camp TechKobwa. Created by Peace Corps Volunteers in Rwanda, Camp TechKobwa focused on empowerment for girls through gaining skills and confidence using computers and media technology. The camp encouraged young women to become active citizens by building their self-esteem and confidence, and helped them start computer and media clubs with their information and communication technology teachers upon returning to their schools. #Africa #Rwanda #camp #genderequality #girls #women #empowerment #computers #technology #media #USAID #latergram
"Photo was taken in Kyrgyzstan on August 9th, 2012. We had a 2 week summer camp that taught our kids about leadership and creativity. Each day at camp was a dress up day and the day this photo was taken was Hippie Day!" - Peace Corps Education Volunteer Casey Palmer
Peace Corps Volunteers Caryn Steinbrecher and Leslie W. Stewart IV organized a youth leadership camp called “Super Vacaciones” in Nicaragua. Twenty-four kids, between the ages of 7-12, participated in the camp, which covered topics including: HIV/AIDS awareness, teenage pregnancy prevention, gender roles, self-esteem development, life skills planning, leadership, and creativity. The goal of the camp was to provide students with an intellectually stimulating environment, which incorporated physical, creative, and thought provoking activities.
A few weeks ago Sara and I had the privilege to work with Jillian at her special needs camp. It was a week long camp with activities from arts and crafts to water games and even teaching children to brush their teeth after eating. Although it was a challenging camp, it was so rewarding to see the children’s smiling faces.
