Subject: NJ PCV in Armenia
I am a current PCV in Armenia. I am from Caldwell, NJ (Proud Jersian). I currently have a PCPP project on the Peace Corps website. I was wodering if you could promote it on your website or to the RPCV NJ Community?
It is called Border2Border and is a hike across the entire length of Armenia, stopping in small villages teaching 6 topics in interactive ways. (Schools here are still very soviet style) The lessons include: nutrition, anti-smoking, environment, respect, hygiene, and food sanitation.
