Hungry Like the Wolf

A single-teacher-school class in Sangala, Mali
As I talk with friends and family about my next step and search the internet for new job and internship opportunities, I have found some awesome organizations with some pretty cool listings.  Now if only I can find find employment with one of them!  I thought I'd share a list here of some of my favorites so you can get an idea of what kind of work I am looking into (aside from the general Communications/International Education):

Peace Operations Training Institute
International Youth Foundation
The Walters Art Museum
Johns Hopkins University
CASA de Maryland

I'm still looking and applying - and hoping the perfect fit will come along soon!

In other news, Abdoulaye's K-1 fiancé visa application is officially submitted - please wish us luck as we begin Operation Abdoulaye to America (OAA)!!!

P.S.  When we were in Ghana for our transition conference, a panel of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) working in Ghana came to speak about their experiences in working abroad/life after Peace Corps.  Here is a list of some of the places they worked:

West Africa Trade Hub
USAID Foreign Service
Global Mamas
Ghana WASH Cost Project
USAID Personal Service Contractor (PSC)
Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology
Equatorial Coca-Cola Bottling


  1. yay! i will send all my positive vibes to you guys for OAA's success! :)
