==Appeal Response April 28th 2010==
 +
This is in response to your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.  Specifically, you request the information listed below.  Our response is in bold.
  
===Purpose and Approach===
+
1)      The current Peace Corps' staff directory (2010).
  
Goal Two of Peace Corps states:
+
Enclosed please find the Peace Corps Alphabetical Employee Directory which consists of seventy-one (71) pages. After careful review, seventy (70) pages were redacted pursuant to 5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(2) which prohibits from disclosure records related solely to the internal personnel rules and practices of an agency. The remaining one (1) page is releasable in its entirety.
:To help promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the peoples served.
+
The purpose of the Cultural Club is to approach Goal 2 from a global perspective. The Cultural Club consists of me giving an informal presentation about any country in the world that they vote on, '''except''' America or England. The presentation usually lasts about an hour predominantyly filled with me showing them pictures and videos of the focused country's cultural practices and rituals (like cuisine, clothing, ethnicities, dances, festivals and architecture). In addition, the only time the students hear my voice is when I am answering one of their many questions. Furthermore, I excluded America because it is not the most influential country in the world as many people believe it to be. It is, in fact, '''simply an amplifier of other countries' traditions.'''
+
  
===Action Plan===
+
2)      The current Peace Corps' political appointee list.
  
#Have the kids vote on a country.
+
Enclosed please find a list of the Peace Corps' political appointees (1 page).  No pages have been withheld.  We are providing this at no cost to you.
#Wikipedia and Wikitravel! It contains the most comprehensive information on all countries. I would gather and write the following facts/stats on the board:
+
**Date of creation/independence
+
##Population (and comparison to Ghana)
+
##Land Size (and comparison to Ghana)
+
##Type of government and its head
+
##Capital city
+
##Religions (percentage)
+
##Local greetings
+
##Fun fact
+
#Next, I would google and search YouTube for pictures and videos for the following:
+
:Pictures of teh country's different ethnicities
+
:Picutres of the 3 largest cities or most significant places
+
:Pictures of cuisine and its ingredients
+
:Play cultural music as you show the pictures of places
+
:Videos and pictures of 3-4 distinctive traditions or festivals (5-10 minute long videos)(There is software that allows you to download YouTube videos.)
+
:UNICEF makes a series of books called Children Just Like Me.
+
  
For example for Spain:
+
3)      The current list of all Peace Corps' consultants and or part time positions.
:Fun fact - Spain is the second largest tourism industry in the world.
+
:Naming customs consist of people having 2 surnames (father's-mother's).
+
:Distinctive traditions:
+
::Running of the Bulls
+
::Bull fighting
+
