PAST EVENT

CorpsAfrica: Peace Corps for Africans

Liz Fanning, Founder and Executive Director, CorpsAfrica

CorpsAfrica was started by former Peace Corps volunteers to provide educated young Africans the chance to serve in their own countries, along the lines of the Peace Corps model. Young Africans are living in faraway regions of their own country, developing the kind of understanding of poverty that only comes from living it, and benefitting personally and professionally from the transformative experience of achieving successful development efforts. CorpsAfrica volunteers ask local people what they want, connect them to the resources of local, regional and international NGOs, and build the villagers' capacity to help themselves.
