Peace Corps Celebrates Volunteers Returning to Sierra Leone

Share

By signing an agreement, the United States, and Sierra Leone governments agreed to reestablish a Peace Corps/Sierra Leone program. Sierra Leone hasn’t had a Peace Corps program since 1994.

“I am honored to celebrate the volunteers returning to Sierra Leone,” said Peace Corps Chief of Staff Stacy Rhodes (Bolivia, 1968-1970) at the send-off celebration. “It is with their enthusiasm, commitment, and compassion that the Peace Corps continues to carry the torch of President Kennedy’s dream and responds to President Obama’s call to service.”
