Camp CHACA 2016: July 2-6th

GAD’s 2nd Annual Camp CHACA brought 52 young Nicaraguan men and 20 staff (PCVs and Nicaraguan counselors) together to learn about gender equality, violence prevention, and leadership.  With a song titled Somos Uno” (We are One) as our anthem, workshops about sharing power in relationships, goal setting, HIV/Aids and pregnancy prevention, and condom negotiations, all combined with the magic power of camp songs, games and fun, this week was the week of a lifetime.

As the boys grew throughout the week, we watched the transformation from CHavalos A CAballeros (boys to gentlemen).  We can’t wait to see where their journeys take them and know that they will be a part of making Nicaragua a more equitable place.
