Projects in Guyana
Let Girls Learn
In Guyana, 88.4% of girls give birth between the ages of 15 to 19, interrupting education and employment opportunities. There are 97 Peace Corps Volunteers in Guyana working with communities to increase literacy, build life skills, and help boys and girls make informed decisions about their sexual and reproductive health through the Let Girls Learn initiative.
Each year we host 2 successful empowerment camps, Camp BRO (Boys Redefining Ourselves) and Camp GLOW (Girls Leading Our World) and look forward to developing additional activities as an official Let Girls Learn post.
