Peace Corps  Make the Most of Your World 🌎🌍🌏

From @dancemagazine: “@peace.corps.eastern.caribbean Response Volunteer Rebecca was teaching ballet at the Dominica Institute of the Arts when a tropical storm grew into what would become Hurricane Maria—the worst national disaster in Dominica's history. Peace Corps sent her home for two months while they assessed the situation, and when the agency asked her to return in December, she instantly agreed, even if that meant living without electricity. Rebecca found that teaching her students (after the hurricane) has not only been a way to empower students and help them process this traumatic experience, but it's also reignited her own love of dance.” (qtd. in Dance Magazine 2018)

“I love spending time in the background of community celebrations with the women responsible for feeding the masses. Cooking nsima becomes such a joyful team effort!” – @peacecorpsmalawi Volunteer Emily

Mana Teresinha owns a warung on the beach where she sells fish and katupa every Saturday. 🐟 She and her customers need to wash their hands, and mana Teresinha needs to wash dishes as people come and go. 💦 With the help of @peacecorpstimorleste Volunteer Sherry, mana Teresinha now has a tippy tap to make it easier for her to wash dishes with running water and soap. 💧

"Celebrating our differences, instead of pinning them against each other, can lead to deeper understanding and more empathy. Our #Ramadan memories are some we will cherish the most from our experience in Morocco." Read @peacecorpsmorocco Volunteers Olivia and Kabir’s full story on our blog (link in bio)

A young girl in northern #Madagascar proudly admires her newly planted green onion "zanako" or "child." She took part in a gardening training aimed at inspiring #gardening curiosity and daily responsibility through caring for plants. 🌱 Tip from @GoPeaceCorps: Want to spend some time outdoors this summer and become a more competitive #PeaceCorps candidate at the same time? Try volunteering at a community #garden or working on a local #farm to gain experience for #agriculture programs. 🌱☀🌷
