Need: Future partners for annual Girls empowerment conference in Costa Rica
I am helping organize a conference for young women in San Jose, Costa Rica that will coincide with International Women's Day.
The conference is the work of a group of Peace Corps volunteers in Costa Rica. We have been leading workshops for girls on topics of self-esteem, sex ed, domestic violence, human rights, and economic justice. At the end of each workshop, the girls complete creative homework assignments (poetry, short stories, drawings, collages, etc.) The best assignments are selected by a panel of judges and compiled into a magazine. The winners are then invited, along with their mothers, to the Voces Valerosas conference where they receive the copy of the magazine and participate in empowering panels and workshops.
We are looking for future partners to help finance this project so it can become an annual event. If you would like to help support the conference in any way please contact me through PulseWire.
Note: Thank you to all the women who have responded to this post, I appreciate all of your support. We have found all of the panelist, they will be Professional Costa Rica women who can donate their time to attend the event.
