Info about the Youth Summer Camps

The Girls' Summer Camp program is a collaboration between Peace Corps Burkina Faso and the Ministry of Secondary Education. There will be a series of ten camps. Prior to the camps' commencements, Burkinabè counterparts will take part in a collaboration to plan the camps activities, which will focus on education, gender roles, sexual health, and decision making. At the end of the week's activities, the girls will perform infomational interviews with professional women at their places of employment and report back to the group what they learned.

Partnership funds will be providing most logistical costs for each camp. The communities will be contributing lodging for the participants, classrooms for sessions, and travel costs.
