Info about the Girls Summer Camp

Que Serons-Nous Demain or Where will we be tomorrow is a girls camp designed to encourage girls in 8th and 9th grade, from small villages, to continue their education. Female illiteracy rates in Burkina Faso are some of the highest in the world. These camps are designed to encourage these young women to continue their education, expose them to educational and professional opportunities available after they finish schoo,l and to help them develop self-esteem and decision making abilities which will positively impact their lives. Peace Corps, in conjunction with the Ministry of Secondary Education, is organizing 9 camps throughout Burkina Faso. They will also organize a pre-training camp to help prepare Burkinabe counter-parts in structuring their camps and in teaching the participants. While there is flexibility within the camp structure each camp will teach Life Skills (decision-making, self-esteem, communication, sexual health) and Professional Skills (letter writing,public speaking, action planning). The Ministry of Secondary Education and the local communities will provide lodging for the participants, meeting rooms and some materials. They are asking Partnership assistance with covering costs associated with transportation, food, lodging for speakers, and other materials needed for the camps. Project #686-080
