Peace Corps 50th Anniversary Celebration In San Francisco Bay Area
  • Sharebar

The 50th Anniversary of the Peace Corps was celebrated in the San Francisco Bay Area  by the Nepali Community appreciating the Peace Corps involvement in Nepal.

Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) who had volunteered in Nepal and even RPCVs from other parts of the world joined the celebration.  They shared their PC experience with the Nepali community and also explained how their PC experience impacted their lives.   With pictures, taped music and memories from their time in the Peace Corps, the exPCVs were excited to relive their time in Nepal.

The event culminated in the handing out of an appreciation letter from the Embassy of Nepal to the US.

Excerpts from the Appreciation Letter – Embassy of Nepal:

“the former Peace Corps Volunteer to Nepal (who) have not only contributed to the socio-economic development of the country but also in strengthening the ties of friendship between the people of Nepal and the United States” .  “YOU ARE THE TRUE FRIENDS OF NEPAL”.

Much thanks to Ambassador Shankar Sharma, First Secretary Ananda P. Sharma and the rest of the Embassy staff for sending the appreciation letter on a very short notice.  Much gratitude to all those that came and brought some great food.

During the event,  reinstating Peace Corps program in Nepal was also discussed.  A follow up meeting is planned.   The formation of Nepal Caucus in the US Congress will help push this campaign with the US Government.

Maps and other promotional material from Nepal Tourism Board to promote Nepal Tourism Year 2011 was also handed out during the occasion.

    We are hoping to have more get-togethers in the near future. One area where we will try to coordinate is the campaign to reinstate Peace Corps in Nepal. Thank you for you comment…
