32 US Peace Corps Volunteers Sworn in

By Moses Kidandi

The latest group of  32 U.S. Peace Corps Volunteers in Uganda have been sworn in. The swearing in ceremony was presided over by U.S. Ambassador to Uganda Deborah R. Malac. The 32 Volunteers will specialize in educational activities, specifically with the objective of promoting reading and literacy.

Volunteers serve in Ugandan communities for two years, working hand-in-hand with local partners to help improve the lives of people in the communities where they live and work.

Prior to the swearing-in ceremony, the Volunteers spent nearly three months in the country to sharpen their skills and immerse themselves in Ugandan culture.
