    The main aim of this summer camp is to focus on the empowerment of the female community through the use of media and art. Through their work, they are motivated and inspired in a fun and creative way. In addition, this foundation emphasizes strength and confidence. These girls are able to find their true identities, not defining themselves based on the norms of the society.

The staff at this camp are exceptionally hard working individuals who strive to put a smile on each camper’s face. The love and care they share for each young lady is extremely heart warming. Although they have known each other for a short period of time, they have already created an amazing bond.
