Lives and Worldviews

Kwabena O. Akurang-Parry, Associate Professor of African History & World History at Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania, writes that he was a young boy in Ghana when his parents hosted two PCVs. Peace Corps volunteers were his teachers and gave him a lens through which to view the United States. With Kwabena's observation in mind, we would like to clarify that the invitation to this project extends to those from our host countries who might have a thing or two to say about their half of the Peace Corps experience. If we need to translate, we can figure that out. Please pass the word.
