Need: I'm Glad I'm A Girl

The Camp was established in 2011 and its aim was to encourage young women to take interest in the welfare of girls in their community. The Camp brings together 22 university women and 44 girls 13 to 17 years for one week at Mary Seacole Hall at the University of the West Indies in Jamaica. The girls participate in discussions and activities designed around their sexual and reproductive rights, their rights as girls and as minors. They also participate in talks about their bodies, getting to know themselves inside and out. They participate in discussions about beauty and hair type, skin colour, and we help them to begin to negotiate plans for their future through a career seminar.

Economic empowerment, leadership development, wise financial planning, yoga, self defense and creative expression are some other activities that the girls participate in. Last year we got funding for the Young Feminist Fund (FRIDA) this year we are not so sure we will receive FRIDA assistance but regardless it is costly to facilitate such a venture. I have been inspired from my participation in the camp and I have been privileged to watch it grow in these two years.

But we need financial help, so anyone out there who can help we really need your assistance!
