Because of Peace Corps, you walk for peace.
Because of the Peace Corps you saw a new way of life. You learned a new language, your tried new foods, you gained a second family. Because of Peace Corps you helped your village build wells, combat HIV/AIDS, or empower girls to receive an education. Because of Peace Corps you went to graduate school or started a social enterprise. You became a teacher or a doctor, a mayor or an ambassador. Because of Peace Corps you try to make a better future for your global community. You continue to make an impact.
Because of Peace Corps you’ve dedicated your life to the ideals of peace, progress and understanding — and America and the world are better for it. Because of Peace Corps, you walk for peace.
Walk with us on Sunday, September 25th to celebrate Peace and make a donation to the NPCA Community Fund in honoe of the Peace Corps ideals that you uphold. The community fund ensures that future volunteers can share your experience. As we walk for peace, we champion why America and the world need Peace Corps, and more of it.
Want to see more Volunteers in the field? Want to help improve RPCV post-service health care? Want to have more resources for PCV and RPCV projects? Want to provide clean drinking water to a village? Donate to the NPCA Community Fund through our Walk for Peace.
To celebrate 55 years of Peace Corps and ensure that the Peace Corps community achieves its greatest potential, pledge $55 (or any amount you choose) to ensure that host communities around the world continue to benefit from the impact of Peace Corps.
