I have just returned from an amazing week at GLOW (Girls Leading Our World) camp. We had 29 awesome girls, six Rwandan facilitators, and a group of Peace Corps Volunteers who came together for a week of learning about HIV/AIDS and life skills. Here are the lessons that there girls studied- the ones in bold are the lessons that I taught.

– Goal Setting and Achieving

– Self-Esteem

– Facts and Myths about HIV

– HIV and the Immune System

– HIV Transmission

– Disease Progression

– HIV Prevention

– The Best Response Game

– Gender Roles

– Steps in Making a Good Decision

– Peer Pressure

-What is Love?

– Role Models

– Milk Can “Piggy” Banks

– Goal Setting and Achieving, Revisited

It was an incredible experience and I loved watching the girls come together from different schools to bond throughout the week. I have more to say about the camp experience but for now here are some pictures that give you a glimpse of the week:
