COVID-19: How Your Support Helps Women and Girls During the Pandemic

Author: Denman Island Girls Group


The Denman Island Girls Group meets weekly during the school year, and continues meeting during the summer with a weeklong summer camp in August.  It is facilitated by the Hornby & Denman Community Healthcare Society Youth Outreach Workers Lanna & Matta and held at the Denman Island Community School.  We always encourage girls who are not registered in school, or who are involved in other school programs to attend.  The ideas and topics are often generated by the youth, and we spend a lot of time doing self-exploration through art-based activities. Since we live and work in rural, remote communities accessibility is key and we get a lot of materials from our free store, recycling depot the beaches and donated from the community.
