In rural Morocco, most youth never receive the opportunity to recognize and develop their potential as future leaders. But hope is on the horizon for two small hillside communities in the High Atlas Mountains who have come together to create a summer leadership camp. This Girls and Guys Leading Our World (GGLOW) camp, based on an original Peace Corps volunteer initiative, will give 50 youth between the ages of 14 and 17 the opportunity to enrich their lives and their communities.
+
In Benin there is a strong need to identify young female leaders and have them serve as role models in their respective communities. Young girls are faced with grueling household responsibilities, oppressive social expectations, and lack of encouragment and respect in their culture. However, in Benin many recognize that these social norms are detrimental to progress and the hope for future generations. Peace Corps has been requested to assist a local NGO to organize the first camp for "Girls Leading our World" (GLOW) in Benin.Objectives of these camps are to encourage young women to become active citizens by building their self-esteem and confidence, increasing their awareness and helping develop skills in goal setting, assertiveness, career and life planning. Through activities the participants will build confidence and increase communication and problem solving skills. Girls chosen to attend camps will be from all three ethnic groups, and will come from throughout the Borgou region. There will be 48 campers the first summer, with local volunteers serving as counsellors and teachers and Peace Corps Volunteers providing support and guidance. The staff who will implement the project are members of "Maman Modeles" and EASPED. Women chaperones will be chosen from each village.

Designed to cultivate informed and active individuals, the camp will foster skills training and education in the areas of (1) leadership and teamwork, (2) goal-setting and decision-making, (3) self-awareness and confidence, (4) the ability to understand, define, and respond to social issues in the region (e.g. environmental protection, AIDS awareness, gender roles, etc.). This skill set gives youth the tools necessary to better manage their personal lives and positively influence their communities. Encouraging the continued education of boys and girls is central to the project.

+
Local teachers and community leaders provide the project's driving force by contributing their talents, time and resources. In all stages of planning and implementation, this core group remains positive, involved and motivated. Teachers serve not only as mentors, but as resources within these communities to promote long-term sustainability. The communities have expressed their sincere commitment to the camp by donating the campsite, labor and equipment. Your contribution will help secure the materials, food, transportation and other items needed to make this camp successful.
