Miss Sierra Leone UK 2015, Yazmin Karim had a meeting at the office of the first lady, Mrs Sia Nyama Koroma, to prepare and discuss arrangements for this years ‘National Girls camp 2015”
The first ever national girls camp was organised last year by the first Lady, with support from UNFPA, the CHINESE EMBASSY, NIGERIAN HIGH COMMISSION, MSWGCA, MEST and other stakeholders.
For 7 days ,more than 50 girls from across the country, who had excelled in their various schools and had demonstrated skills in leadership were part of the camp 2014.
The camp taught various topics on leadership, healthy lifestyles, SRH education, sports and ICT as a tool for girls empowerment.
The camp also provided fun social activities for the girls. Last year there was an outing at Freetown’s popular no.2 beach followed by a dinner at city favourite Country Lodge.
Now with the help of Yazmin and others the search for participants of camp 2015 is on. As one of her goals as Miss Sierra Leone UK, Yazmin uses her title as a platform to "empower , inspire and strengthen females, of all ages and walks of life” and commenting on the opportunity to play a role in this years camp, she is ‘super excited to be on board this fantastic initiative.”
