Interested in the lives of Peace Corps volunteers?
The Online Education Database, a non-profit that helps ambitious or prospective students find the most convenient, valuable, and relevant education programs to fulfill their academic and career objectives, highlights the 40 best Peace Corps blogs.
From the blog:
Since 1961, [the Peace Corps] has sent Americans abroad in order to nurture education, the environment, public health, agriculture, housing, and other necessities in parts of the world with few resources, squelching political atmospheres, and worse. It’s not a perfect system by any stretch of the imagination, but plenty of volunteers end their Peace Corps stints having affected positive change in an often cruel world. And in the digital age, it makes perfect sense that many find blogging an ideal outlet to open up about what they hear, see, smell, taste, and touch on a regular basis. This provides not only a valuable peek into what the organization stands for, but an even better conduit for exploring global cultures through a first-person lens.
