Finishing my service as a PCV in Guyana. A great two years!

After working hard to raise money through PCPP, I was able to attain supplies and resources for our village's LRC. One of the favorites amoung the children was "Memory", a matching game with pictures of dinosaurs. Here, 2 sisters test their memory as we played together.
Even in our remote, small Amerindian village, many young people don't know how to do all the traditional skills. As a part of a training program to prevent human trafficking amoung the youth, building pride in local culture is emphasized by teaching youth how to weave baskets from local palm and how to shoot bow and arrow. Here, one youth who already knew how to weave a basket helps another who is just learning.
