We are Peace Corps Volunteers working in the Community Economic Development program in Benin. Prior to serving in Benin, we served one year in Cape Verde, where we both worked on a FAO project to improve nutrition education, introduce garden-based learning, and develop agricultural business. Here in Benin, Adam is working with a small business owner and Jen is working at the agricultural extension service.
We read a lot of Peace Corps blogs during our application and placement process, and wanted to share our experiences for other applicants and volunteers. We also wanted to let our friends and families keep up-to-date on all we’re seeing and doing here.
