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.

"Two older women, called Tatik in Armenian, would be sitting along the road I took into town everyday. Without fail, I could expect a comment on what I was wearing, what I had bought from the store, or where I was headed so quickly. These women were intimidating in the beginning, but I learned to love interacting with them everyday."  - Peace Corps Volunteer Emily Hass #latergram #photoofthedday #Armenia #culture #peacecorps #women #tatik
