Girls On Fire Leadership Camp
Organized by: Eileen Flannigan
EVENT DATE Dec 04, 2015
We are fundraising for the December 2015 Camp with a GOAL of raising $41K in 4 weeks!
Your support will ensure:
- 20 Girls On Fire are able to attend this camp.
- We travel to 4 different regions in Kenya and work with "impact partners", which are community organizations working in that region.
- We are planning to do 5-7 impact projects with these partners ranging from: developing a literacy curriculum with tribal girls, doing a school improvement project with Muslim girls, reading groups & art at an orphanage, learning around conservationsim through an orphan elephant project, and building a home for a pastorial family.
- We collaborate with local leaders and work alongside girls to develop sustainable projects that will benefit thier community.
- We will be doing Girls On Fire training with women leaders and girls who are yearning to have the guidance to shine.
- We are also creating a book (self-published) that the girls will be able to use on the camp and all year long.
- We are partnering with US camps to experiment on having a global exchange and peer mentorship programs.

Our Mission Girls On Fire Leaders is providing early adolescent girls with personal and community leadership skills development through travel, service-learning, self-expression and global connectivity.
We are piloting this project with the most vulnerable girls in the Kenya, many of whom are victims of gender violence and poverty, in the largest slum in East Africa.
Girls On Fire Leaders is not yet a 501c3 but we hope to get it by the end of 2016. In the meantime, we have a fiscal sponspor and deep partnerships with other reputable non-profits working in the same region, with the same population.
