Five Country Directors Take New Posts

WASHINGTON, D.C., August 13, 2004 Peace Corps Director Gaddi H. Vasquez is pleased to announce the transfer of five country directors to new posts. Each of the country directors will officially begin his or her new assignment this month.

Peace Corps country directors are responsible for management and direction of all aspects of the Peace Corps program in their country of assignment. The country directors support volunteers in the field. They lend their skills and energy to meet development needs and promote a better understanding between the host country people and Americans.

The new country director assignments are as follows:

Namibia - Howard Williams
Prior to his new post in Namibia, Howard Williams served as the country director in Ghana beginning in April 2002. Williams came to the Peace Corps with 20 years of international educational development experience, including design and capacity building for institutional and system-wide monitoring and evaluation systems in Bangladesh, Botswana, Egypt, Ghana, Lesotho, Nepal, and Nigeria.

Williams holds a doctorate in international development education from Florida State University. He was a Peace Corps volunteer in the Philippines from 1979-1982. Williams lived most of his adult life in Tallahassee, Fla., before he and his wife, Dr. Pamela Allen, departed for Ghana.
