Hello, I work with exchange students and I have a girl from Azerbaijan that I am trying to place with a local host family. I was wondering since you know some of their culture if you would know of anyone who would be interested in learning first-hand about the Azi people? I live in Adams county Pennsylvania. Thank you for your time

Any RPCVs interested in a short-term volunteer opportunity in Jordan? The America's Unofficial Ambassadors (AUA) program at Creative Learning is dedicated to expanding and supporting private American citizens' service in the Muslim World. From January 6-15 2012, AUA will lead a group of volunteers to Jordan to support local community development initiatives, learn about Jordanian culture, and meet face-to-face with Jordanian families and university students. Volunteers will spend 4 days working with Habitat for Humanity to build homes for poor families in the north of the country. They will also engage in discussion with civil society groups in Amman and Irbid to learn more about Jordanian culture, share insight into American culture, and discuss challenges common to both societies. The Building Peace by Building Homes trip to Jordan will end with visits to Petra (one of the modern 7 Wonders of the World) and the Dead Sea.

The trip is the first in a series of three Building Peace by Building Homes trips that CL will lead in 2012 [Additional trips to Tajikistan (May) and Indonesia (July) are still being planned]. For more information visit: ding-peace-by-building-homes/, or contact AUA trip leader, Andrew Stinson, at

I am searching for any current members of the Peace Corp actively serving in Baku who might be willing to provide assistance or offer advice in helping me to locate a family who fled from Donetsk in the spring of 2014 after they were forced from their home by separatists and sought refuge with other family members who reside in Baku, Azerbaijan. I can be contacted at the email address below, or at
