Question for Mauritania RPCVs

Peace Corps Online: Directory: Mauritania: Message Center for Mauritania RPCVs: Question for Mauritania RPCVs

I have a question for recently returned (last 2 years) RPCVs from Mauritania. I was a business volunteer in Bolivia (96-98) and I've decided to join the Peace Corps again and hoping to go to French speaking Africa this time around. I am still trying to figure out when I would like to leave my current job and I'm trying to get a sense of when business volunteers leave to francophone posts. First, are there business volunteers serving in Mauritania, and if so can you tell me what month the business volunteers arrive? Thanks!

Yes, there is a SED sector there and all trainees arrive together - only one group per year - at the end of June/beginning of July. The 2005 group arrived on July 2.
