Over the next 10 years, 50 million girls around the world will be at risk of becoming married before the age of 15. While it's a sensitive topic, the global community must come together to protect these young girls.  #tooyoungtowed  
 
The “Too Young to Wed” exhibition highlights the issue of child marriage through more than 30 photographs of child brides from around the world: http://tooyoungtowed.org/ 

“This exhibition tells us that child marriage remains widespread in many countries, despite the adoption of domestic and regional legal frameworks forbidding this practice,” says UN Human Rights Chief Navi Pillay: http://sm.ohchr.org/1kErZkT

Had an awesome week making paper snowflakes in LEEP. We'll be hanging them in the classroom so I'll be sure to share some photos of the awesome designs the students and tutors made. Hope you're all having a great week, too!

Do you remember making paper snowflakes when you were a kid? Winter has ended in the US, but is just beginning in Botswana. This week in LEEP we are making paper snowflakes to highlight how the unique individual fits into the beautiful, yet complex, larger community. It's also likely that these will be the only snowflakes in Dukwi this winter!

#Yoga  is increasingly practiced in Israel. "I was looking for some spiritual support. Yoga gave that to me."

Introduction
I'm the Co-Director of the Leadership Education & Empowerment Program (LEEP), a global initiative of Scottie's Place, which has been providing academic and leadership program for children affected by poverty and conflict for more than 10 years.

I've now had the pleasure of booking with AirTreks for two international trips. Each experience has been fantastic: their staff is responsive, kind, and helpful; their emails are descriptive, thoughtful, and relevant; and their research is quick and thorough. Will continue to return to them for future travel.
