PEACE LEADERSHIP TRAINING SUMMER CAMPS
<a href=” </a>
The PeacemakeHers Leadership Camp was a rare and exciting opportunity to not only gain incredible insight about pressing local, national and international women’s issues, but to connect with other Atlantic Canadian women with similar goals and perspectives to brainstorm new strategies for addressing these issues. The camp offered a wealth of knowledge through informative lectures facilitated by compelling leaders; passionate discussions among insightful participants; and opportunities for collaboration that served as a significant source of inspiration and empowerment. I saw the camp as a unique and unmissable event to further my knowledge and garner new skills to improve my ability as a human rights activist and global humanitarian.
As an active humanitarian, peace advocate and women’s rights activist, I am committed to the feminist principles and peacemaking efforts that are at the very core of Voice of Women for Peace. The PeacemakeHers Leadership Camp and, more specifically, the inspiring women with whom I was acquainted during the camp, left me feeling empowered and motivated to become involved in the work of Voice of Women for Peace. I am thrilled to become part of an integral group of advocates and leaders with whom I hope to make a significant contribution to strategic peace-building efforts and the eradication of violence in all its forms.
