Although Peace Corps’ presence in Niger is on hold at the moment, 2011 still marks 50 years of promoting peace and friendship by volunteers in dozens of countries, and 49 years in Niger.
Friends of Niger will hold an important meeting on Friday, September 23, 2011, in Washington DC, to discuss a strategy for lobbying for reinstatement, as well as continued support for local NGOs in Niger.
The time and location are not yet set; if you would like to attend please contact Penni St. Hilaire and she will send you an email as soon as the details are finalized.
The time and place will also be posted here when available, so please check back before September 23rd.
Following the meeting, all are invited to a social gathering at the Penni’s home in Northwest Washington. For additional information and if you would like to attend, please contact Penni.
