the existence of this remarkable institution with a relatively minuscule number of volunteers and a very low budget. The fact that the budget is so low informs all concerned that this is not a
charity but a hands-on commitment by the volunteers to teach, inform, assist, demonstrate, encourage, innovate, cooperate, delegate and live with the population they wish to help that they may help themselves. As seen and told through Barbara's narrative, the experience on both sides creates enduring and endearing positive actions and memories for the betterment of all concerned, in spite of a few rough patches. I know from anecdotal experience that so many returned Peace Corps Volunteers continue on with lives of service; Barbara turns this around by bringing her years of helping others
into the Peace Corps. Her perspective as "An Old and Knowing Soul" (OAKS) certainly gives those of us "of a certain age" encouragement to go out and do what we can by imparting our skills and
knowledge to help others sustain themselves.....and to help our own psyche and country.
