Hi everyone! I’m a Peace Corps Volunteer celebrating month #17 of my service in Nicaragua. As this New Year begins, I can’t think of a better cause to support than that of gender empowerment.
Peace Corps Nicaragua is hosting a camp for girls, Camp GLOW, in January (we’re also hosting a Camp for boys, Camp CHACA, in April!). Learn more about how you can help this amazing camp. Read detailed blog posts from previous camps too see how each donation is spent.
As a member of the Gender & Development Committee, I am asking you to spread the word about Camp Glow. We have about $5,000 to raise by mid January, and every cent helps.
$4 in the U.S. buys a latté. In Nicaragua, $4 guarantees each teenage girl a spot to attend a week of networking with other girls and learning about issues from reproductive health to self esteem! Please help spread the world (either via re blogging, tweeting, sharing from our fb page, anything) and have a Happy New Year!
