Info about the Girls' Conference 2009

The Volunteers of Peace Corps Guinea, in accordance with the Girls’ Education Initiative of Peace Corps Washington, are working with Guinean counterparts to encourage girls to continue their education and develop the capacity to make independent, conscientious decisions regarding their health and their future.

To this end, we propose the 2009 Peace Corps Basse Guinea Girls’ Conference. The Basse Girls Conference (BGC) will be a four-day event held in Guinea from June 16th-21st, 2009 (including travel days). The participants are 24 school-aged Guinean girls from the volunteers’ respective villages. Local contributors, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and volunteers will work together to direct the BGC, planning interactive sessions on topics crucial to the success and well-being of the girls. The girls will learn techniques for success in school, educational and professional possibilities, and personal health (including preventing HIV transmission and family planning), among other things. At the same time, they will develop skills such as critical reasoning and public speaking so that, by the end of the BGC, they will be able to present and speak confidently about the information they have learned.
