Peace Corps Global Partnerships

The Office of Strategic Partnerships at the Peace Corps is currently managing more than 40  public and private partnerships as well as relationships with 147 colleges and universities.  “Public and private partnerships are a priority”, according to Peace Corps. “They enable us to open doors of opportunity and implement interventions to save lives and create ripples of hope.”

Peace Corps Global Partnerships

There are two multinational for profit corporations. Peace Corps is involved with the economic developments programs of these two corporations.

1.  Water and Development Alliance (WADA) Agreement

From the Peace Corps Press Office:

The Water and Development Alliance (WADA) is a partnership between The Coca-Cola Company and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) that addresses community water needs in developing countries around the world. In 2012, the Peace Corps partnered with WADA to jointly create water supply, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) training curriculum for the use of Peace Corps staff and Volunteers. This curriculum was piloted at a workshop in West Africa, then finalized and made available to Peace Corps staff and Volunteers worldwide doing work in the WASH sector. Per the terms of the partnership agreement, the Peace Corps agrees that the use of its name and logo may be used in conjunction with the logos of WADA, USAID and Coca-Cola Company on the WASH Training Package, fact sheet and conference materials. Neither staff nor Volunteers distribute these materials widely.
