SECID, the Southeast Consortium for International Development,is based in Washington, D.C. SECID is a consortium of land grant universities which provides technical assistance and trainging in developing countries.

We are preparing a proposal for USAID to implement a five-year training program in Southern Sudan. This program will provide training to local trainers who will subsequently train other participants. The subject matter areas include:
1. Crop production; 2 Animal production; 3. SME agribusiness, marketing and economics;
4. Fisheries development and processing;
5. Forestry and forest product development; and
6. Wildlife management.

We are seeking candidates who have subject matter expertise (MS degrees desirable), training experience and an interest in accepting two-year assignments in the southern part of the country - likely locations include: Yambio, Maridi, Yirol, Rumbeck, Boma, and Yei.

Interested persons can Email CVs and/or email Bob Delemarre at: rad@secid.org to obtain more information, raise questions, etc. These assignments would not be suitable for families with children due to lack of facilities and schooling.

I am an RPCV from Guinea, working on anti-FGM legislation in Uganda. I understand only the Sebei (?) in the Mt. Elgon/Kapchorwa area practice FGM. As an RPCV I thought information from current/past Uganda RPCVs, especially anyone living with the Sebei, would be extremely helpful to my project. If anyone worked with them, or could get me in touch with someone who did work with the Sebei I would be very thankful!

We are looking for information on the practice of female genital stretching in Uganda. It is a pre-marriage ritual performed by some Baganda. We are also curious whether anyone has heard of the pratice of female genital stretching being followed by FGM? If you have any information on genital stretching, or have known it to be followed by FGM, we would very much appreciate your sharing your knowledge with us.

My husband & I are RPCVs (Papua New Guinea '95-'97) & need some counsel from a Uganda PCV on current conditions of safety there. We have a 13 yr. old Granddaughter who has been invited by a Methodist Church connection to accompany a volunteer health team to Uganda in July with a total of 7 days of service & evangelizing. There activities will be in Gulu & Jinja where she will be involved in child care while parents rcv. medical attention. We have tried to discourage her parents from giving permission & $3000 for this trip because we think it unsafe. We also think she is too young to absorb the positives of the African culture in so short a time. Could we rcv. some feedback?

Hello,
Am Mr Lutwama James, a secondary school teacher and love of nature.This is my first time to open the peace Corps website. I have read it and wondered how love towards humanity is portrayed in the peace corps activities.
Five years back, managing a community based organization for the disadvantaged called fountain of hope.It's sole objective is to rejuvenate hope among the community.We have program like assisting the drop out school children back to school,sensitizing the community on how best to utilize the available natural resource for a profitable living I.e, Enabling women making crafts, profitable gardening skills etc.
In 2005,members from wwoofing stayed with us for a month and this is what they witnessed at,www.meganandmichael.com/travelogue/uganda/
Where we do our activities, we live like hopeful inhabitants ranging from humans to beasts of the wild. Monkeys freely picks guavas as if there are the ones planted them. The splendor of flora has attracted animals ranging from reptiles, birds amphibians to mollusks.I spend time wondering the speedy approach and skills a spider uses to construct traps[the spider web] over head[in space] whereas it has no wings. and a lot more...
I would love to share with the peace corps members, my experience and theirs by writing, picture sharing or visiting our place which is called Arcadia valleys.
We have a plan of constructing a community resource center and those would wish to be part of us in any kind can let us know how she or he ca be part of it.
Wish you the best

Hi Everyone,

It may be long ago but I am looking for my Dad by Names of Martin J D Hill who served in Uganda around 1968 to probably the early 70s. He used to teach at a school called Kabalega Senior Secondary School in Masindi. He was a volunteer of the US Peace Corps.

He has written a book "The harambee movement among the Kitwi of Kenya" - a self help book on social anthropology published by berg publishers for the London school of economics. Published in 1991.

I have never seen him as he left Uganda just before I was born. My mother is called Suzan and was living in Masindi, Uganda by then.

I just want to know and meet my Dad and/or my paternal relatives. Nothing bad intended for his search. Anyone who has any information may help. There may be some RPCV who knew or still know him

Thank you.

To Michaela Hoffman in Uganda,
You have the kindest, loving Dad in the world. I am so honored to know him. He brags about how a wonderful, intelligent daughter you are. He would do anything for you. He would be so honored if you were to contact him this coming Sunday on Father's Day or anytime for that matter. A friend of your Dad.

This is a great project about Ugandan women abducted and forced into marriage at the hands of the Lord's Resistance Army. Please, take a look -
