Girls on Fire Leadership Camp launched the first immersion trip throughout Kenya in December of 2014 with 20 girls ages 6-13 years old and 4 adults. It provided the most vulnerable girls living in Kibera slum of Nairobi, Kenya an opportunity to travel and experience their country for the first time, immerse themselves in different cultures and gain the confidence and skills as young leaders to view themselves as part of the solution, rather then perpetuate a dependency mindset.
In the 10 months since the end of the trip, the impact has been deep with their personal growth and development and has rippled out into their community in tangible ways that shows these girls are thirsting for opportunities to lead. They are active in cultivating new, creative ways to learn about themselves and provide help to others.
The 2016 Girls On Fire Leadership Camp's impact was far reaching and not only had personal impact but the Girls on Fire were able to create lasting impact in their school, their community and with girls all over Kenya. Get inspired by the details below!
