Yes, I really want to contact Susie McGowan on of the peace corps that went to Mambolo in 1988. She taught me Mathematics at the Great Scarcis Secondary School, Mambolo. Now I am in California. I want to thank Susie for the time and relentless effort of volunteer work with the Peace Corps. The people of Mambolo miss her and I will love to see Suzie again in my life.
