1968: Kevin Gaudette served in Sierra Leone in Koribundo/Kpowubu/Gbese beginning in 1968
Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Kevin Gaudette can be contacted at thirdworlddevayahoodcom
Country of Service: Sierra Leone
Training Group: 1968--Teachers/1969--Chiefdom Development
Cities you served in: Koribundo/Kpowubu/Gbese
Arrival Year: 1968
Departure Year: 1970
Work Description: Primary Ed./Teacher Training/Ag. Devel.
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Promoting English as an inter-national language. Cultivating 'the Force' via
Chinese Tai Chi etc. Ben Franklin-like, promoting strategic grassroots links with
China in the new-WTO world, with earth-based systems-thinker Sun Tzu superior
to 'ancien regime" (sur)realist Machiavelli.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
TRANSITION can be traumatic sometimes for some people. Both in-country and
back-home. So DEEPLY are the Peace Corps memories registered in my BEING!
In Sierra Leone I perceived that the terms "culturally deprived" and
"underdeveloped" can be used to describe "the vast wasteland' of all-too-many
USA alienated non-communities. So much we can LEARN from "the other":
cultures...about cooperation...grassroots sustainable non-corporate
democracy...it takes a VILLAGE to raise a CHILD...
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Anyone looking for some Star Wars action and Jedi Knight Training.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
The Future requires Individuals
Able to Endure the Pain
The pain of Culture Shock
In order to Repattern
Their Habitual Neural Pathways
