Assessing the Peace Corps' Role in the Development of Education Around the Globe

By Linda Benyahia

It is worth noting that the Peace Corps is not only a development organisation, but also a peace-building organisation. Among the three goals of the Peace Corps, only the first focuses on economic development. For this reason, it might make sense not to compare Peace Corps efforts with those of major foreign aid programs such as those of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) or the World Bank.2 Still, the Peace Corps does undertake capacity building projects. Focusing on ideology, accountability, and sustainability, this paper will discuss the benefits and limitations of the Peace Corps’ education development efforts.
