Get Involved

If you’ve ever lived in Ethiopia, you never really put it behind you. You follow the news, any you can get, avidly. You look for people who have just been there. You find Ethiopians on the outside, or they find you. You collect stories. You wait for any chance to go back.”  Maria Thomas

For most of us, our service in Ethiopia or Eritrea was a life-changing experience. Many of us thought that we were going to change the world only to discover that it was we who had changed. Our service did not end when we left the country, but influenced major decisions in our lives. Some of us were fortunate to return -- once, twice, sometimes to live. 

We can continue to be involved through the Ethiopia and Eritrea Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, an affiliate of the National Peace Corps Association. It is easy to become a member.

Serve on the board, post/follow Facebook, plan a reunion, attend Peace Corps Connect.  Share your ideas on the direction E&E RPCVs should take.  We are listening.
