Welcome to The Peace Gallery! If you are a returned or serving Peace Corps volunteer read this!
The Peace Gallery grew out of a desire to provide positive coverage of our global community. Most often the only information we see and hear is centered around disease, disaster, and war. There is nothing about the world I saw during my Peace Corps service in Ghana -- family, friendship, rich culture, and capable people. My Peace Corps experience was not unique.
This Peace Gallery presents images from around the world as seen through the cameras of Peace Corps volunteers. Although the images show the amazing diversity on our planet, they also show how similar we are to each other. In looking through the gallery, marvel at the differences, but also see the similarities. After spending two years in the Peace Corps, one realizes it is how close we all are that is truly amazing.
