Explores the importance of educating girls in developing countries, as well as some of the factors that traditionally limit girls’ access to education. Through a narrated slide show a Peace Corp volunteer, explains the challenges facing girls in Niger, and how a program called Camp GLOW (Girls Leading Our World) helps provide education and life skills to prepare girls for a healthier future. Students will investigate the problems of poverty, nutrition, and health that disproportionately affect women and girls in developing countries. They will then create educational skits or games.
