Girls Leading Our World (GLOW) Camp

Girls Leading Our World (GLOW) Camp in Pyuthan District, Nepal October 30th 2015: Empowering Women of Nepal (EWN) in collaboration with Peace Corps Nepal and Kalika Development Center (KDC) of Pyuthan district successfully organized its 4 days Girls Leading Our World (GLOW) Camp. 16 young girls and 3 female chaperons from Bijaya Nagar, Dharampani and Bangesal VDC of Pyuthan participated in the program.

EWN’s GOAL facilitators Isha Pathak and Ekshana Karki, along with other facilitators from KDC, discussed and explored the following issues: girls’ rights, health, gender roles & challenges, leadership, child marriage, peer pressure and much more. The classes provided an interactive learning experience.

Child marriage is one of the critical issues in Pyuthan. Hence it was the centre topic for the girls to discuss. In addition, the facilitators realized that the girls had very limited knowledge regarding violence.

The girls enjoyed dancing, singing, making river trips, friendship bands, vision board, watching movies/ documentaries and sharing their first bus ride experiences.

We are grateful for this wonderful collaboration!
