More than fifty percent of
the world is starving. Another
twenty percent, just plain
hungry. And yet, in the face of
starvation, they have hope.
Hope that the rains will return
to the African Plain. Hope that
the Asian rice crop will be bigger
this year. Hope that someone,
anyone, with anything tou
offer will come to help them
fight the battle for life.

the changes you can

pretty much like you.

People with commitment and
skills who've assessed their
lives and decided there must
be more than just having a job.
They looked into themselves
and knew it was time for the
talk to end and the work to
begin. They're very special
people, these people. Totally
prepared to give
everything they've got.
And getting back even
more than they give.
That's the beauty of the
Peace Corps. The work
is hard and the pay is
lousy, and the progress
comes a drop at a time. But
the rewards are infinite..
