A Year of Gifting Week 25

The Peace Corp-Educating Girls, Empowering Communities:

Girls Conference in Sierra Leone

 

When I turned 16 I had my Mom take me down to the Peace Corp to sign up.  I had wanted to volunteer there since I was 13 years old.  When I got there I was enthusiastic, but was told I would need to wait until I had a few more years of experience.  I was very disappointed at the time, but life had other things planned for me back then and I my son about a year after that visit.  I always held The Peace Corp close to my heart and their mission to promote world peace and friendship.  Please join me this week as they celebrate their 50th anniversary and donate a minimum of $3-$10.00 to support their outstanding work in the world.  I chose a community project to support, but when you click on the link below you can choose anyone that is close to your heart.  This simple gesture can make a change in an entire community.  Please give generously to this amazing cause.

 

 

Mission

In 1961, President John F. Kennedy established the Peace Corps to promote world peace and friendship.

The Peace Corps' mission has three simple goals:

1.    Helping the people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women.

2.    Helping promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the peoples served.

3.    Helping promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans.

     

About Us

The Peace Corps traces its roots and mission to 1960, when then Senator John F. Kennedy challenged students at the University of Michigan to serve their country in the cause of peace by living and working in developing countries. From that inspiration grew an agency of the federal government devoted to world peace and friendship.

Since that time, 200,000+ Peace Corps Volunteers have served in 139 host countries to work on issues ranging from AIDS education to information technology and environmental preservation.

Today's Peace Corps is more vital than ever, working in emerging and essential areas such as information technology and business development, and contributing to the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief. Peace Corps Volunteers continue to help countless individuals who want to build a better life for themselves, their children, and their communities.

It's better to send in the Peace Corps than the Marine Corps.
