Official Certificate Award Ceremony
With the help of your generous donation, Girls Leading Our World (GLOW) Leadership Academy 2015 touched the lives of another 80 Bulgarian girls who come from 31 different communities in Bulgaria.
The Academy included diverse interactive sessions dedicated to leadership, teamwork, effective communication, decision making, public speaking and gender roles. A special guest of the training was Mrs Rumyana Kolarova, Secretary for Education, Science and Civil Society of the President of the Republic of Bulgaria, who shared valuable lessons for not only professional development, but personal as well.
Along with the educational sessions, there were daily sport and meditation sessions and creative workshops. All participants took part in an open lesson of self-defense that taught them on how to react in risk situation and basic moves to escape physical violence.
All girls received special recognition for their work at the Official Certificate Award Ceremony. The gala dinner was opened by the inspirational keynote speaker – MrsTammy Paltchikov, Acting Counselor for Public Affairs of the Embassy of the United States in Bulgaria.
