AP: At 60, Peace Corps plots return to world after virus hiatus

AP: At 60, Peace Corps plots return to world after virus hiatus. “More than a year after COVID-19 began sweeping the world, abruptly cutting short her Peace Corps stint, Cameron Beach is once again living in rural Malawi — this time on her own dime. The Peace Corps, a U.S. government program marking its 60th anniversary this year, boasted 7,000 volunteers in 62 countries in March 2020. They were given little time to pack before being put on a plane and sent back to the United States that month.”

New Archive of Peace Corps Volunteer Photography From Nepal, 1962-1975

NepaliTimes: All our yesterdays. “Doug Hall was a PCV in Nepal in 1968-1969. A few years ago he digitised some of his old Nepal photos and posted them on Facebook. A few Nepalis commented that he should preserve those photos because they had historic importance. He then realised that hundreds of PCVs from the early years also had photos that should be preserved. His wife Kate Rafferty Hall was also a PCV in Nepal, and together they began a project to collect, digitise and catalog as many Nepal photos from the 1962-1975 period as possible.”
