Earlier this year, five Peace Corps Volunteers from the central highlands region of Madagascar gathered in the nation’s capital of Antananarivo to facilitate a weeklong GLOW (Girls Leading Our World) camp for young female leaders from their respective towns. The five Agriculture Volunteers selected four young women each from their respective communities, ages of 13-16, along with an adult chaperone to attend the camp. The aim was to equip young Malagasy women, who show potential for leadership, with the necessary skills to make healthy life choices as well as advance their personal, professional and academic goals.

Taking a break from a leadership development meeting, Peace Corps Volunteers in Ukraine visited an orphanage to spend a few hours playing with infants, along with host country counterparts. About 55 children live at the orphanage, ranging in age from newborn to 3 years. The Volunteers also donated coloring books, markers, and diapers to the orphanage.
