In all corners of the globe, “girl power” is a potent idea that has been transforming societies for many generations. From the economy to public health, female empowerment is a key element in the progression and evolution of any developing society. For this reason, Peace Corps has made Gender and Development a worldwide initiative. Camp GLOW (Girls Leading Our World) is a camp that has been held internationally in Peace Corps countries, and February 2014 will mark the third year it is held in Paraguay. Camp GLOW Paraguay includes motivational speakers, engaging activities on sexual education, self-expression, creativity, goal setting, value formation, gender roles and personal identity. With your support, our dream to fund Camp GLOW 2014 can turn into reality for this year’s motivated participants! Please unite with us in the movement towards female empowerment in Paraguay! To donate, click on the link below! Thank you for joining the cause!

The Aymara of the Bolivian Altiplano are often considered to be dour and unsmiling. Nothing further from the truth, as can be seen by Dona Manuela ready to have a try at shearing one of her sheep with hand shears. Instructing people in the local villages to use hand shears instead of a piece of tin can lid was one of my projects in animal management. The concept caught on fairly well.

Palm Sunday on Paama: after service, the kids pillaged the branches cut to decorate the church. We made palm pinwheels, watches, bows, rings, crowns and swords. A hundred biodegradable playthings.
