Good News: Camp GLOW is a go!

28 03 2012

While we’re on the topic of projects, today I got great news: A proposal I recently submitted with two other volunteers was approved through the United States Agency for International Development! Woot! The proposal is to have a four-day girls’ empowerment camp in August. Girls from three villages (including the one where I live) will come together in Siem Reap to learn about women’s health, rights and opportunities. The camp is modeled off a popular and long-standing Peace Corps project called Camp GLOW (Girls Leading Our World), but has been organized in way that is very specific to the Cambodian context. I’m thrilled to be working on this project and am thankful to be working alongside two other great volunteers.

Expect more updates as the project progresses.
