Brief Project Description:
This 5 day camp is intended to open the eyes of 7th and 8th grade girls to larger world where anything is possible. We want to help the girls to realize they can be successful wherever they choose to go in life. Sessions in the morning will cover topics such as setting goals, reproductive help, domestic violence, an outing to the museum in Parakou, and a model women session where they will be able to learn about different professions in which women work both in Tchatchou and in bigger cities.

In the afternoon there will be sports sessions where girls will learn how to play kickball and soccer. There will also be craft sessions where the girls will learn to crochet using plastic bags, encouraging awareness of recycling and the environment. On the last afternoon, there will be an awards ceremony, during which the girls will share what they have learned over the week with their families and awards and prizes will be given to each girl.

The camp will be co-managed by three tutrices, adult women who can model good behavior and serve as resources to the girls throughout the camp. Assisting the tutrices will be two older girl counselors. These women are donating their time. All of the guest speakers (all women) are donating their time and expertise. Finally, CEG Tchatchou is donating their school space. PCPP funds are requested to pay for supplies, for a field trip, and for a morning snack for participants for four days.

Dates of Project: July 26-30, 2010 with ongoing meetings and preparation in the month of July.

GAD Coordinator: Sounds like a great project ! I’ve been working with the PCV on his PCPP app so I’m probably a little biased (and I understand the project well) but I recommend funding
