TWENTY-two girls from around the country are attending the first Girls Brigade Fonomarae camp in Port Moresby.
The week-long gathering saw girls coming from Western Highlands, East New Britain and the National Capital District.
The camp is an inter-denominational gathering that the Baptist, Lutheran, United and Christian Revival Crusade churches allowed their members to take part in.
Girls Brigade Commissioner Powe Barziring said the theme of the event, “Made to make a difference”, was based on the purpose of bringing young girls all over PNG together and meet each other, make new friends and keep these friendships and share and learn new things that will build their spiritual lives.
“Most importantly it is to encourage them to read the Bible daily and build a strong relationship with their Saviour,” she said.
“The week-long camp is based on spiritual, physical, educational and social aspects of their lives.”
