If you are looking for a global experience for your students or yourself, this might be one to check out. Girls Helping Girls: "The Empower-a-Girl program is a grassroots sister-team initiative that partners girls in the United States with girls in schools and community organizations in developing countries to work together toward the achievement of our four global goals, which together distill and reflect the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals. The only initiative of its kind run by girls, for girls, Empower-a-Girl’s unique and engaging program encompasses four main aspects: cultural exchange, a global education, social change projects, and investment in girls’ development."

I wish I had known about this when I was a Girl Scout Leader. This would have been a great experience for girls to directly make a difference in the world.
