Kristin Vahle, Peace Corps Volunteer

Kristin Vahle, a Greenfield Native and Peace Corps Volunteer spoke to Kiwanis about her experiences serving in Rwanda.  She served in the Peace Corps from May, 2016 until August, 2018.  
The Peace Corps was founded in 1961 by President John Kennedy to provide trained people to countries needing them and also to promote understanding between the people of the nation being served and the people of the  United States.
46 percent of the Peace Corp activity is in Africa.  The activities are 41% Educational and 20% in Health Services.  Those are the services she worked at in Rwanda, a country about 1/3 the size of Indiana with 13 million people.  She discussed the economy, agriculture, culture, crafts, dance, animals, and agriculture of the country, 
Her work was primarily in the area of Maternal and Child Health.  Much of her work was in prevention of malnutrition.  She accomplished this by providing food and food powders, gardening instructions, and nutrition information, 
Since returning from the Peace Corp she is working on obtaining a Masters in Public Health.
