Our first stop was to visit the all-girls summer camp at the YWCA Haiti (Young Women’s Christian Association Haiti) in Place Boyer (rue Goulard).
Their mission is to empower girls and young women through education, mentoring, guidance and leadership. When we arrived, that morning with our team of 5, a box and bright orange t-shirts to do a book donation, little did we know that we’d be so touched and impressed with the program, that we’d do an impromptu read aloud activity. Among the books was the story of Malala! A perfect choice for attentive and inquisitive minds, read with passion and enthusiasm by our very own IRC director Nathalie Gardere.
