Dear Former Volunteer,
Ko na mauri, we hope that this letter finds you in good health and doing well. This year, the United States Peace Corps will be celebrating 30 years of friendship and service to the people of the Republic of Kiribati. As the time approaches our anniversary, many volunteers are taking time to reflect on their service and how it has affected their lives.
A variety of volunteers have expressed the interest in starting a Friends of Kiribati Group, a network of former and current volunteers. The Friends of Kiribati would work within the National Peace Corps Association, the official home for Returned Peace Corps Volunteer. If successful, we would try to start a type of newsletter about the current life in Kiribati, updated information of the Peace Corpsí projects and current information on former volunteers who served in Kiribati.
We understand and respect the privacy of all former volunteers and this is not an attempt to solicit donations. We will under no circumstance sell the names of former volunteers. With that said, we are seeking your help. We currently have an incomplete list of volunteers and are in the process of updating our database.
In true Kiribati fashion, we have a bubuti. We are asking for your help in contacting former volunteers and completing our volunteer roster. So if you could please send your current contact information including phone number, address, e-mail address, Peace Corps group number and island of service and field. Also, we are asking you to send information that you may have on former volunteers and country directors, whether it is current or outdated. This is information that only you can provide. All information and leads will be followed up. This is the time to search old address books and those trash drawers that will all have at our desks. Who knows, there might be a former volunteer living do the street from you that you donít know of.
Thank you so much for your cooperation
Te mauri, Te raoi, ao Te tabomoa.
