1. St. Lucia Girls Circle

    I have organized and facilitated an empowerment group for girls between the ages of 9-16 called Girls Circle.  The Circle provides a support system for the girls with role models and peers alike.  One of the sessions during the 10 week Relationship building segment was traditional peace tea ceremony.  The girls could not talk and were asked to only communicate through eye contact while they shared tea and biscuits.

    A fellow volunteer and I completed the classic world map project in small villiage close to out site.  It was a great project to teach the children about geography.  I wanted to show friends and family back home how it works.
