In December, the Peace Corps volunteers in Luapula Province are going to put on a girls empowerment camp called Camp GLOW. Girls from all over the province come in order to learn about empowering topics including HIV/AIDS awareness, other health related issues, and to discuss their futures as young women. Last April we put on this camp and A to Z Literacy Movement sent boxes of books to distribute to the girls attending the camp. The girls received many things including notebooks, hair ties, etc… but of all the things they were the most excited about were the books. The girls in my village then returned and I see them reading with other girls in the village. We’re grateful for the books A to Z shipped and we’d like to know if you could send us some more. Thank you!

Love it! Girlie things are great, but there is nothing like the gift of a book!
