Thirty-eight US Peace Corps Trainees arrived in the country on Tuesday to begin their two years of service to the people of Guyana.
A release from the US Embassy yesterday said that the 30th group of Peace Corps Volunteers to serve in Guyana have begun pre-service training on the Essequibo Coast, living with local host families and learning the Guyanese way of life. They are stationed in the villages of Suddie, Huist D’ieren, Queenstown, Windsor Castle, Capoey Lake, Lake Mainstay and Anna Regina.

As health and education volunteers, they will engage in field practicums in local schools and health centres. The group is expected to be officially sworn in as Peace Corps Volunteers in early April, after which they will begin service throughout Guyana, the release said.
