Peace Corps group hosts GLOW/BILD camp in Vanuatu

The camp focused on training pairs of Peace Corps Volunteers and counterparts along with local community members in a variety of activities that they can take back to their respective villages and replicate for the youths in their communities.

Camp GLOW/BILD consists of a jam-packed, week-long schedule that starts with leadership and life skills and slowly transitions to adolescent reproductive health and sexual rights and responsibilities.
