The Peace Corps 2008 Biennial Survey of Volunteers, including country-by-country breakouts of the results, has been provided to [[Peace Corps Wiki]] by Chuck Ludlam. He and his wife, Paula Hirschoff, have twice served as Volunteers, once in the 60s and recently in West Africa and have been leading a campaign for Peace Corps reform. While they were serving as Volunteers in 2007 they flew to Washington from Africa at the invitation of [http://dodd.senate.gov/ Senator Chris Dodd] (RPCV / [[Dominican Republic]]) to testify for reform, on behalf of Volunteers in the field, at the [http://foreign.senate.gov/hearings/2007/hrg070725a.html July 2007 hearing of the Peace Corps Subcommittee]. They believe that the survey results identify opportunities and challenges facing the Peace Corps and the need for reform. They will shortly publish a detailed, comprehensive plan for Peace Corps reform, including a detailed analysis of the 2008 Biennial Survey results. To receive a copy of this report after it is issued, contact Chuck at (chuck DOT Ludlam AT gmail DOT com). Peace Corps Wiki thanks them for their leadership and for providing us with these illuminating documents.

The primary objective of the project is to improve the resources, presentation skills and mixed media ability of organization “Beskitek”, the organizational leader and partner of farming cooperative CPKV, Zhetasai. This will be done through 55 hours of IT trainings by the Peace Corps volunteer on Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Publisher, and Adobe Photoshop, combined with resource acquisitions of a laptop computer, LCD projector and projection screen, and a color printer. This will increase the ability to disseminate information of new business and agricultural strategies and methodologies to local civic and agricultural partners, thus improving the capacity building of those organizations.

The overall goal of this project is to strengthen civic and economic conditions by achieving sustainable, progressive, and competitive agricultural development.

The primary objective of the project is to improve the resources, presentation skills and mixed media ability of organization “Beskitek”, the organizational leader and partner of farming cooperative CPKV, Zhetasai. This will be done through 55 hours of IT trainings by the Peace Corps volunteer on Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Publisher, and Adobe Photoshop, combined with resource acquisitions of a laptop computer, LCD projector and projection screen, and a color printer. This will increase the ability to disseminate information of new business and agricultural strategies and methodologies to local civic and agricultural partners, thus improving the capacity building of those organizations.

The secondary objective of the project is creating and publishing the first copy of a bi-monthly agricultural newsletter, along with designing organizational brochures and posters. Working with partners and local farmers has exposed the limited connectivity and sharing of information between partnering farmers, processing plants, and financial and civic institutions.

Community contributions include office space for IT trainings, an auditorium for partners and civic trainings, a computer, filing cabinet, binders, folders, and paper for the newsletters, poster, and brochure, along with an IT technical assistant, agricultural trainers, travel costs, graphic designer, project coordinator, and newspaper editor.
