The Real Peace Corps

4 03 2012

So as I was browsing Facebook the other day, I found a blog post by another Peace Corps volunteer that has been floating around and being posted by various Peace Corps volunteers.  The post does a magnificent job of capturing the essence of being a Peace Corps volunteers and the things that we feel and deal with on a daily basis.  It is definitely the most accurate description of life as a Peace Corps volunteer.  Enjoy.

time because the skills forced to be a handyman are not necessarily a similar
skills that are required to run and market an enterprise.
BUY When You Can Verify the Expertise of the Trainer.
And, irrespective of where they are presented, they’re able to draw in large audience which
may convert to large volumes of traffic.

Hi! I stumbled here from PC journals, I hope you’re doing well. I’m an education PCV in Kenya and I’m doing a little research into PC policy regionally (I know, nail biting stuff, haha)… I would love to know a little about the policy in Tanzania. If you’re up to answering a few questions, my email is

Mostly I would like to know about your out of community policy (as we call it here) and your motorcycle/travel policy. In Kenya we currently have 2 out of community nights a month. Anytime we overnight anywhere outside of our site, we are required to use an out of community night and to inform PC. We are also not allowed to travel to the capital save for serious medical issues, or with express pc permission (the PC office is in the capital).

As far as mode of travel goes, motorcycles are forbidden (even though the majority of PCVs live in places that are 10ish K off the tarmak, only really accessible by motorcycle). We are also forbidden from night travel.

I’d really appreciate your thoughts : )
