Friends of Colombia has launched its 2017 Fundraising Campaign. It is with your generous support that we are able to continue to support our educational projects and entertain new ones. This year we inaugurated our Peace Corps Volunteer Field Support Program with a grant to support the anti-bullying school program started by PCV Maya Cross and a Colombian colleague. This new effort complements our long-time efforts to support communities through education, microlending and other targeted assistance. Please help us with your donation to Friends of Colombia, P.O. Box 15292, Chevy Chase, MD 20825 or go to PayPal on this site.
This new newsletter takes you back to Colombia, in more ways than one! Read about current projects being carried out by PCVs now, with the support of FOC. Learn how one group, Colombia 13, planned its recent 55-year reunion. Remember the first PCVs, members of Colombia I, to die in service. And celebrate the All-Girl Little Engineers from Marina Orth schools who are new international robotic champions! All this plus a new book review and remembrances of two PCVs.
