Review for CorpsAfrica, New York, NY, USA
CorpsAfrica is an innovative and sustainable non-profit that is tackling multiple social issues by promoting intercultural exchange, participatory community development, and grassroots volunteerism. As a Peace Corps Volunteer I have benefitted from CorpsAfrica Volunteers' know-how and presence in my region of service. I have seen firsthand how CorpsAfrica volunteers embody the talented, passionate, and savvy leaders who are eager to make positive impacts in their communities, countries, regions, and the world. With CorpsAfrica's locally-based, globally-minded volunteer approach, international development does not have to be a field plagued by paternalism and dependency. Instead, it becomes an embodiment of understanding and cooperation that starts with open-minded individuals and the communities they learn from and contribute to.
