July 12, 2011 – CorpsAfrica Board member David Sanford hosted a lovely reception at his home on Capitol Hill to introduce CorpsAfrica to the DC community. Ambassador Marc Ginsberg helped us announce the formation of a special tribute to Ambassador Richard Holbrooke. Senator Harris Wofford introduced Ted Vestal, who spoke about and signed copies of his new book, “The Lion of Judah in the New World,” about Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia. (We like to think of Emperor Selassie as the Honorary Founder of CorpsAfrica – he was so impressed with Americans coming to Ethiopia as Peace Corps Volunteers that he made it a requirement for all students at Haile Selassie University to volunteer for a year in a high-poverty area before they could graduate.) Sixty guests joined us – on the hottest day of the year – for this fabulous event. See pictures here.
March 1, 2011 - The official kick-off party for CorpsAfrica was held on March 1, 2011 – the exact date of the 50th Anniversary of the US Peace Corps. Abad Allawi, the National Peace Corps Association, was there and captured the festivities eloquently. You can read his article here and see the pictures here.
