Hello friends and family!
First off, I hate asking for money. However, this is a project which is particularly worthwhile and cannot happen without help from people in the states. As a Peace Corps Volunteer, I have become heavily involved with a working group of volunteers called the Gender & Development Council (GAD). Every summer, GAD, in partnership with local Ukrainian organizations, organizes two summer camps for Ukrainian youth, ages 14-17. Camp GLOW (Girls Leading Our World) and Camp TOBE (Teaching Our Boys Excellence) provide a unique opportunity to gather 40 girls and 20 boys from different parts of Ukraine to participate in a camp dedicated to learning about gender issues, leadership, and team building.
In order to make these camps a reality, we need your help to raise $8,361. With just a small donation you could send a Ukrainian child to camp for one day for only $13, or pay for copies of camp materials for only $25. Sending one child to camp for the entire week is only $72.
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation ($10, $20 or more) to help us make camp GLOW/TOBE an amazing experience for young people in Ukraine.
You can make a donation at the following website: https://www.peacecorps.gov/index.cfm?
If the link doesn’t work, you can try going through the Peace Corps Website. Go to http://peacecoprs.gov.
- On the left side will be an option that says “Donate to Volunteer Projects”.
- Once you have clicked there, you should click on “View All Volunteer Projects” on the right side.
- Put “Ukraine” in “Country of Service” and “GLOW/TOBE Leadership Summer Camp” in “Keyword Search”.
That should do it.
Thank you all so much! I know you can’t all donate, but we appreciate any help we can get.
Happy Women’s Day!!!!!!
