Camp GLOW partners with SPBD Tonga
Posted on September 20, 2012
Two SPBD Tonga staff members recently participated as “Model Mommas” in partnership with Camp GLOW (Girls Leading Our World). Camp GLOW is a week-long leadership camp organized by United States Peace Corps volunteers serving in Tonga. Campers attend sessions on critical thinking, decision making, leadership, HIV/AIDS awareness, domestic violence, and more. Another large component of the camp is career exploration. The girls spend half a day shadowing local career women as a way to learn more about future careers.
This year, Vasi Falepani hosted Siaongo ‘Ata Latuhoi, a Form 3 student at Tonga High School. After spending time with Vasi, Siaongo said, “At SPBD I learned about different job responsibilities and what to expect in my future”. Kalo Pakileata hosted Susitina Ta’ai, a Form 3 student at Apifo’ou College. Susitina spent time out in the field, and had a unique opportunity to learn about microfinance operations. Thanks to both Vasi and Kalo for taking the time to share with these girls.
