Africa Rural Connect Community


A message to all members of Connected Peace Corps

Hi, members of the Peace Corps Connect Community!

There is only one week left to submit your ideas for the FIRST round of competition on Africa Rural Connect.

Have you contributed your best idea for rural Africa on As we near the first round deadline, there’s no better time to join the community.

As you hopefully are aware, NPCA created ARC to bring all of us together to discuss our most creative plans for rural agriculture in Africa. Regardless of where you served as a Peace Corps Volunteer, you have something to offer. ARC is holding a competition and awarding small funds EACH MONTH until November when we will award $20,000 to help implement the best idea.

Go for it! Test out your thoughts and see if you can work together with others to make it better:

If you like an idea, endorse it to help it win a round!

I also extend the invitation to your friends, family, and colleagues who you think may be interested in contributing their insight and experience. Share the website on Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, or by simply sending an email to your friends.

Thank you for helping us build the Africa Rural Connect Community!
