VIEW THE VIRTUAL EXHIBITION

 

From its inception the Peace Corps has offered an alternative path for advancing peace and promoting friendship among nations. This exhibition brings home and showcases objects and stories from 30 volunteers. They represent a sampling of the nearly 240,000 individuals who have served since the Peace Corps’ creation six decades ago.

 

Peace Corps volunteer Harry Birnholz (Benin 1974-77) and local farmers try a weed-management farming technique using animal traction.
