The 2012 UANA/VOICE Summer Camp Program was highly successful. UANA partnered with VOICE an organization that has developed a summer camp program for girls with a focus on effective
communication, life skills, and community involvement. This program was used in Hyderabad, and in
for 2012 they adapted a version for North India with local examples and references. The VOICE staff
first trained the people who directly conduct the camp (teachers and counselors) first, and after training
they started operating their respective camps, with support from VOICE team monitoring the progress
in each camp, the collection of metrics and follow up activities.
Another partnership UANA made is with schools where the camps are run. Some of the schools have
partnered on other projects in the past, and for some schools members have helped find the right
connections. The following schools participated in the program and they brought a lot of enthusiasm, including that from the
