Happy Valentine’s Day!
Shout out to all our loved ones who are serving far away from home today.
Howard joins several local colleges on national list of those that provide the most Volunteers for the Peace Corps.
Howard has been acknowledged as a significant producer of Peace Corps volunteers among historically black colleges and universities, but the Peace Corps said that Howard’s appearance on Tuesday’s list marked the first time that an HBCU had placed in the main national rankings.
Today we announced the 2014 Top Volunteer-Producing Colleges & Universities!
Did your school make the list?
Some photos and textures from home. On the wall in my bedroom; on the bed in my bedroom; wallpaper in the kitchen; wallpaper in the bathroom; curtains in the living room; rug in the living room; the Wall of Inspiration and armchairs I never sit in; beautiful gifts from friends.
It’s finally here! Check out the WORLD PREMIERE of PEACE CORPS DIGS!
Today my ANAMED Club (Action for Natural Medicine) was interviewed by a radio journalist!
The organization NASFAM (which is something about helping Small Farmers of Malawi) has a branch in our village that has been supporting our club. With their donation of seeds and tubes we’ve planted about 4,000(!) tree seedlings for our school and community. The seedlings pictured are moringa which is an amazingly nutritional plant. So the reporter came and spoke to all the students about what we’re doing and why, and next Saturday we have a 30 min program on radio 1! It was all in Chichewa (hence my strained face trying to scramble up some words) but I could tell my students did an amazing job and I’m so proud of the work this club has done.
