'''Family'''

A large village in Niger (home to 4,000 people) lacks abundant resources. Due to their lack of resources like basic water and sanitation, they face many infectious diseases. The poor quality of the water is causing severe diarrhea and malnutrition, particularly in children, where their immune systems are not strong enough to fight.
  
* Notify family that they can call the Peace Corps’ Office of Special Services at any time if there is a critical illness or death of a family member (telephone number: 800.424.8580, extension 1470; after-hours duty officer: 202.638.2574).

This project aims to construct a water tower and four separate water pumps. The Programme d’Hydraulique Villageoise et Pastorale Belge (Hydralique Program Village and Pastoral of Belgium) will pay for the construction of the water tower and pipes. They have sent requests to many villages around the region asking for 250,000 CFA per water pump to be placed into a village bank account for document purposes. Their request to our village calls for the construction of four water pumps.
* Give the Peace Corps’ On the Home Front handbook to family and friends.  
 
  
'''Passport/Travel'''
+
The people of the village are requesting financial assistance to fund three water pumps, and will provide the 250,000 CFA needed for one water pump. Upon construction of the water tower, water pumps, and pipes to track to the four water pumps, the five members of the water tower committee and the four water pump sellers will be trained in water tower maintenance and repair by a representative of Hydraulic. Several months later, a representative of Hydraulic will conduct a site visit to the village to assess and update the situation.
  
* Forward to the Peace Corps travel office all paperwork for the Peace Corps passport and visas.
+
Note: This summary was provided by a Peace Corps Volunteer and the community administering this project.
* Verify that luggage meets the size and weight limits for international travel.
 
* Obtain a personal passport if you plan to travel after your service ends. (Your Peace Corps passport will expire three months after you finish your service, so if you plan to travel longer, you will need a regular passport.)
 
 
 
'''Medical/Health'''
 
 
 
* Complete any needed dental and medical work.
 
* If you wear glasses, bring two pairs.
 
* Arrange to bring a three-month supply of all medications (including birth control pills) you are currently taking.
 
 
 
'''Insurance'''
 
 
 
* Make arrangements to maintain life insurance coverage.  . Arrange to maintain supplemental health coverage while you are away. (Even though the Peace Corps is responsible for your health care during Peace Corps service overseas, it is advisable for people who have preexisting conditions to arrange for the continuation of their supplemental health coverage. If there is a lapse in coverage, it is often difficult and expensive to be reinstated.)
 
* Arrange to continue Medicare coverage if applicable.
 
 
 
'''Personal Papers'''
 
 
 
* Bring a copy of your certificate of marriage or divorce.
 
 
 
'''Voting'''
 
 
 
* Register to vote in the state of your home of record.  (Many state universities consider voting and payment of state taxes as evidence of residence in that state.) . Obtain a voter registration card and take it with you overseas.
 
* Arrange to have an absentee ballot forwarded to you overseas.
 
 
 
'''Personal Effects'''
 
 
 
* Purchase personal property insurance to extend from the time you leave your home for service overseas until the time you complete your service and return to the United States.
 
 
 
'''Financial Management'''
 
 
 
* Obtain student loan deferment forms from the lender or loan service.
 
* Execute a power of attorney for the management of your property and business.
 
* Arrange for deductions from your readjustment allowance to pay alimony, child support, and other debts through the Office of Volunteer Financial Operations at 800.424.8580, extension 1770.
 
* Place all important papers—mortgages, deeds, stocks, and bonds—in a safe deposit box or with an attorney or other caretaker.

A large village in Niger (home to 4,000 people) lacks abundant resources. Due to their lack of resources like basic water and sanitation, they face many infectious diseases. The poor quality of the water is causing severe diarrhea and malnutrition, particularly in children, where their immune systems are not strong enough to fight.

This project aims to construct a water tower and four separate water pumps. The Programme d’Hydraulique Villageoise et Pastorale Belge (Hydralique Program Village and Pastoral of Belgium) will pay for the construction of the water tower and pipes. They have sent requests to many villages around the region asking for 250,000 CFA per water pump to be placed into a village bank account for document purposes.
