Volunteer: Christopher Nelson
Serving a 2-year commitment in the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, Chris is attached to a couple pro-entrepreneurship NGOs where he supports them in internal management and in rendering services. His goal is to ultimately help promote the struggling economy of the small island nation by encouraging the establishment of a small business incubator.

My first day at the Dr. William Connor Primary School, and I am confronted with the reality that students do not have common classroom objects, like pencils and paper, textbooks, or even garbage cans for each room.
Peace Corps celebrates 50 years in the Eastern Caribbean (1961-2011) on June 3rd in Independence Square, Basseterre, St. Kitts. 16 volunteers took part in the festivities, and hosted hundreds of students, co-workers, host country nationals, and tourists to activities, games, and info kiosks about the global mission of the Peace Corps and its history in the Eastern Caribbean.
