This collection of photographs spans the Peace Corps service in 140 countries over the last five decades.  The photos showcase the diversity of the locales where volunteers have served. This pictorial collection captures the work that Peace Corps Volunteers conduct as part of the program ranging from agriculture, community economic development, education, environment, health, and youth development. Peace Corps Volunteers teach English and computer literacy, raise awareness around HIV/AIDS and malaria, facilitate community action and environmental issues, and educate girls and boys in leadership, participation in civil society, and gender issues.  This illustrated book also features the various cultures of the peoples that the Peace Corps has served.
