Women's Health and Leadership Conference of Burkina Faso hosted by volunteers of Peace Corps Burkina Faso. Volunteers Lindsey Scalf (2011-2013), Carrie Jackling (2011-2013), Ashley Paulus (2011-2013) along with other members of the Gender and Development Committee organized a conference focusing on women's issues in Burkina Faso. Eight women from across Burkina Faso, who were identified as mentors and leaders within their communities, along with their Peace Corps counterparts were invited to participate in the three day conference. Topics included women's rights and leadership, hygiene, malaria, malnutrition and sexual reproductive health. This project was made possible by a small SPA grant from USAID.
