Help Camp GLOW 2016 raise funds for t-shirts, water bottles, bags, and notebooks!
Camp GLOW (Girls Leading Our World) is a weeklong sleep away camp based on education and empowering young Guyanese females between the ages of 11-17. The camp provides educational and leadership opportunities through sessions and activities designed for future generations of females in Guyana. Community support continues to be the driving force of Camp GLOW. The Ministry of Education's Department of Youth, Culture and Sports donates the use of the facility where camp is held. As campers, counselors, and mentors from all across Guyana attend camp, various community members provide discounted transportation, wholesale food costs, and partial donations of services such as food preparation for the duration of camp. Camp GLOW’s success can be seen as the campers spread their knowledge and empowerment through the creation of GLOW clubs in their villages throughout Guyana. T-shirts and other promotional items are vital in creating unity and sisterhood during camp and in creating community awareness for the Camp GLOW organization long after camp has ended.

1. Where does my donation go?
The entirety of your donation will be given to Camp GLOW in order to purchase t-shirt, water bottles, bags, and notebooks for the campers.
2. How many young women will this camp impact and my donation?
This year Camp GLOW aims to host 80 campers. There will be 25 Guyanese counselors and Peace Corps volunteers facilitating the camp, as well as numerous guest speakers and volunteers. After camp each year the campers are emboldened to go into their communities all across Guyana and empower other young women in their villages. This included potentially hosting a "mini Camp GLOW" in their village for girl that were not able to come to camp this year. So directly you will be impacting 140 people but the indirect impact has yet to be felt as these young women go into their communities to share what they have learned.
