Peace Corps Wiki and Peace Corps Journals are Temporary Out of Service

 

*UPDATE: March 21th 2013

As of Saturday March 2nd 2013 the Peace Corps Wiki and Peace Corps Journals are Off Line, due to a lack of funding for the monthly site hosting. In 2010 Developmentary approached the National Peace Corps Association (NPCA) about taking over the sites; after a lengthy negotiation we were unable to reach an agreement. In February 2013 we approached the NPCA again and met with them on Thursday March 21st to discuss the future of the sites. This was a productive meeting during and I hope that an agreement will be reached in the next few days or weeks, please check back at this site for more details.

We are accepting donations through our non-profit bank account. All donations will go directly toward restoring hosting services. It costs approximately $200 monthly to provide hosting for both sites. All donations are tax-deductible.

*UPDATE March 21st : Thank you for your generous donations over the past two weeks, we received several hundred dollars that will be used to either find a new hosting option for the sites or move them to different organization that can create a sustainable plan to continue to support the sites.  Chuck Ludlam and Paula Hirschoff have been supporters of these projects for many years. They both served in the 1960s and today and have seen how the organization has changed and stayed the same. They have some deep insights into the functioning of the agency and I want to share that with you so I did a video interview of them in early 2012.I hope these interview clips can inform applicants and the public about just what Peace Corps is and WHY it still exists and the numerous political and social forces at work that keep the organization in its present state.
