Hello former PCV's of Gabon,
Next summer I plan a trip to Gabon taking my sea kayak to paddle from Lamberene to the coast then south via lagoons and if necessary the open coast to Mayumba.
I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has served in that region or has first hand knowledge of it.
Thanks for listening. Please contact me at the e-mail address below.
PS: firstname.lastname@example.org Sincerely, Rick

I try to resume contact with Steve Hilbert who is a professor of English to Mitzic's school in the Gabun of 1978 in 1979 before taking the management in Libreville, always in the Gabun.
If my memory is good, he is native of Kingsville in Texas. Thank you for your help and "bravo" to all for your work,

Hi there - my name is Lisa Shutt and I lived in Gabon over a period of four years (2000-2004) and got to know several PC volunteers - I'd love to hear from any of them who remember me from Lambarene (I was working with Pito learning FANG). However, I'm specifically looking for a volunteer whose name was CHARLIE PITTMAN who served in Mouila quite a long time ago (maybe 30 years ago?) - he was an English teacher and was very important to a good friend of mine named Jean-Maurice YENDA.
Thanks! I also wish I knew the names of the PC volunteers who built schools in villages near Oyem about 35-45 years ago, I would guess. I know a lot more Gabonese people than PC volunteers, but when they hear that I'm American, many of them go straight into stories about how wonderful the Peace Corps volunteers were that they knew. I just thought it would be great to pass those stories onto all of YOU who maybe don't hear enough how much you were appreciated - for the service you provided but, even more, for the friendship that you offered.

I'd like to get in touch with him as soon as possible.
Thanks a lot for your help!

Hi my name is Brent Friedrichs. I was a Peace Corps volunteer in Gabon 1986-1989 (3 years). My partner and I built a 6 room max school 20 km south of Lambarene (Keri). I then moved on to the village of Alonha on Lac Gome - accessible only by speed boat. Later took up in Libreville as "Volunteer Leader". Did some service contracts as Technical Trainer (TT) in RPSC project then Asst Admin Director. Ended up staying in Gabon for almost 5 years total.
Always anxious to hear from other RPCVs of that country/era. often wonder what happened to host national staff in Libreville - Salvador, Timothe (truck drivera), Ada, etc. etc..
So how are the schools holding up? We designed them for 20 years - so can envision that they are starting to have problems

Hi, My name is Dave Torrico and I was a volunteer in Gabon from 1965-6 in a small village called Massaha near Makokou where we built a school and three teacher's houses. It was one of the best experiences of my life. I would especially like to contact a couple of buddies named John Powley and Charlie Sheaffer but would love to hear from anyone who served at that time.
