I have a fair number of friends for whom Peace Corp was one of the best experiences of their lives,

and WUaS would like to generate similar helping opportunities.


Here's what a friend says about PC ...

"Peace Corps changed my life in so many ways, all positive. From language to marriage to exposure to a new rich culture, I grew as a person and a member of a community. Thank you to the American taxpayer for paying for and supporting this program and thank you to all former and current volunteers for their work. Happy Peace Corps Day!" .. and here's a Peace Corps video -
