Disclaimer: The content of this website is mine alone and does not necessarily reflect the views of the U.S. Government, the Peace Corps, or the Namibian Government.
The three goals of the U.S. Peace Corps are clearly and accurately stated here. They have remained the same since it was created in 1961:
- To help the people of interested countries and areas in meeting their needs for trained workers
- To help promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the peoples served
- To help promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans
Every time I post on this blog, it is one more step towards the third goal. As I settle into my volunteer posting, I’ll be shifting from descriptions of my own process in making the transitions to describing the experiences and more fully share cultural perceptions in fulfillment of the third goal.
