A blog of Adrian's adventures! (Formerly a Peace Corps Blog) "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." – Mark Twain

HeForShe Campaign on the Ground


I had a great day getting friends at my site to sign up for the HeForShe United Nations campaign. The campaign is based on grassroots efforts and social media outreach to create a ripple effect to reach around the world the message of gender equality. Part of that is taking pictures with Paraguayans with the #HeForShe sign and to share it on our HeForShe Facebook page to get them engaged.

Please do so too, you can take a picture with the sign (below) or wright #HeForShe in any paper with a pen and share it on our Facebook page. Give us a like at HeForShe PCPY.

Most importantly, we want everyone to sign the pledge to support gender equality at or, please take a moment to do so. Our goal at Peace Corps Paraguay is to have at least 500 Paraguayan men sign the pledge to protect women’s rights!

HeForShe is a national initiative of Peace Corps Paraguay in partnership with United Nations Women that other PCVs and I are supporting to spread the word. We will be hosting workshops on gender equality in May throughout Paraguay.
