Aside from a stunning array of guest speakers and performance groups, Global Week also features a series of small-group workshops with opportunities for hands-on learning. From singing in "Global Glee" to cooking in "Casti Takes Top Chef," each workshop gives the girls a forum for in-depth exploration in an area of interest.
For example, in the "Made by Survivors Design Workshop" girls have the chance to learn the basic structure for developing and designing a new line of jewelry. Students are submitting design ideas for a teen product, and the winning design will be handcrafted in India by women that have been rescued from modern-day slavery. These amazing survivor-artisans are among the first female silversmiths in all of India. Running their own jewelry-making businesses enables them to create free and independent futures for themselves.
Workshops run throughout the week, so stay tuned for updates on the different groups' progress!
