50th Anniversary Digital Library – Calling all RPCVs and Volunteers!

Peace Corps invites you to contribute to our digital library—a searchable collection of photos, stories and documents about Peace Corps, the Volunteer experience, and the agency’s legacy of service around the globe.

As we approach Peace Corps’ 50th anniversary, please help us reach our goal of including photos and stories from each country where Volunteers have served, and from each decade of Peace Corps history.  You can contribute one story and up to five photos from your Peace Corps service using our online process. 

Interested?  Go to http://collection.peacecorps.gov/index.php to start your submission or browse the growing collection of materials

NPCA and Mercy Corps (http://www.mercycorps.org) created the **NPCA/Global Citizen Corps Mentoring Program** through which Returned Peace Corps Volunteers provide key advice, support and mentoring to exceptional high school student leaders selected each year to join Mercy Corps' Global Citizens Corps (GCC) Leadership Program.

The program provides a unique opportunity for RPCVs to help educate, inspire and empower young people from across the U.S. to fight global poverty - and it's all done online! By mentoring tomorrow's leaders, we support the Third Goal of Peace Corps. We foster the next generation of Peace Corps Volunteers. We keep the flame alive.

RPCV SPECIAL:
Peace Corps cloth

From Friends of Cameroon

If you are looking for the perfect Peace Corps related gift, look no further. The Friends of Cameroon has designed a stunning, multilingual "pagne" (the six-meter length of African cloth) that incorporates the Peace Corps logo, the continent of Africa, and the names of all the countries where Peace Corps has ever been active in Africa. An image of the cloth is available at http://www.friendsofcameroon.org

Each piece is enough cloth for one woman's outfit or 2 to 3 men's jumpers. The cloth also makes a creative table cloth, window curtain, wall decoration, and more. The pagne project helps to fund development projects in Cameroon, including four HIV/AIDS education projects that FOC funded in 2006.

We arranged for another printing of the pagnes in Cameroon and have a limited number available. Since they sold out last time, do not delay to place an advance orders. The price is $38 plus $6 shipping per piece.

Ordering information
To order the cloth, which will ship immediately, send a check for the number of pieces you would like made out to "Friends of Cameroon." Please send payment to:

FOC Pagne
13201 Stravinsky Drive
Silver Spring, MD 20904
