Safe Camps 2022

Camps during the Easter holidays

This year from 05 of March to 24 of April the Easter vacations will take place in Kuria.

The Council of Elders has announced that circumcisions will take place this time as well. Currently, preparations are in full swing to be able to protect as many girls as possible.

Together with our partner organizations (see video) we will again hold two camps for 150 girls each. Before and after the camps we are in daily contact with the girls and will keep a close eye on the situation.

Currently we have already collected about half of the donations to protect the 300 girls. Each Euro can help us here.

The costs for the camps are made up of various factors:

  • Accommodation and food for the girls
  • Wages for the teachers and counselors (if necessary also accommodation and meals)
  • Transportation
  • Hygiene articles (water, soap, masks, etc.) and medicines (e.g. malaria, fever, etc.)
  • Teaching materials
  • Recreational activities
  • Alternative Rite of Passage Ceremony¬†

At the end of 2021, the danger for many girls increased rapidly with the beginning of the Christmas vacations.
