Life in the Peace Corps will not be easy. There will be no salary and allowances will be at a level sufficient only to maintain health and meet...”
Our 3,000 volunteers and their partnering organizations bring an unprecedented wealth of knowledge, new ideas, and skills to the fight to end malaria. As part of the Stomping Out Malaria in Africa initiative, we want to see this community of professionals thrive beyond the 2015 goals of Stomp.
We will be using public social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and this Tumblr page to not only keep in contact with participating Peace Corps Volunteers (PCVs) and their partners, but to also reach out and network with other people and organizations participating in the fight to end malaria.
For the Malaria Team – the group of specially trained volunteer leaders (PCVLs), Peace Corps Response volunteers (PCRs), and Peace Corps staff – we will be using our website to upload training materials from Malaria Team boot camps, post initiative updates, and keep a “file cabinet” of online resources.
It is our hope that these online platforms will host a such a passionate community of malaria professionals, from volunteers to malariologists at Johns Hopkins University, that their conversations and combined efforts will continue beyond the stated goals of the Stomping Out Malaria in Africa initiative.
