    posh corps: (volunteer lingo) A Peace Corps country which is more developed. An easy Peace Corps experience. Posh Corps is a documentary that focuses on the lives of Peace Corps Volunteers in South Africa. For fifty years, the US Peace Corps has been sending American volunteers to developing countries around the world to teach skills, and build relationships. As these countries develop, capitol cities become first world enclaves, while rural villages, still maintaining a third-world standard of living, struggle with the cultural strain that accompanies rapid development. Today's Peace Corps volunteer is serving right at the intersection of the first world and the third world, the ragged edge of development. South Africa is one of the most extreme examples of this shifting Peace Corps experience. The struggles of Peace Corps Volunteers in South Africa provide a glipmse of the future for volunteers throughout the developing world. Their stories demonstrate, that the need for Peace Corps does not end when countries become more modern... in fact, the need becomes more pressing than ever. Posh Corps is a documentary for anyone hoping to volunteer abroad, or for anyone who wants to know what volunteers experience in a rapidly changing world.

      Bush League is a character driven ethnographic survey of a tiny village in Northern Malawi. Intimate dramas unfold in the lives of four villagers who are all members of the local soccer team. Chatwa, the team captain, is an ambitious farmer who’s in deep with the local bank but torrential rains are destroying his crops. Jake, an American Peace Corps volunteer who sponsors the team, is pushed to his limits when the politics of the game affect his school construction project. Jacqueline, the head cheerleader, suspects her husband is cheating on her and is concerned he’ll give her HIV. Mlawa is a midfielder and an expectant father who’s gravely concerned about the infection growing on his leg. Each must face their individual challenges as the team battles to win the local championship..

                    postcardstojava.wordpress.com My name is Matt Borden and I am a Peace Corps Volunteer. I am currently serving as an English teacher at an Islamic high school in Indonesia. My students and I are starting a project called Postcards to Java and we need your help! We ask you to please send us a postcard from the place you call home. One international stamp costs just $1.05 in the United States. We hope to collect postcards from all 50 states and from all over the globe (except maybe Antarctica… but we can hope). This project is designed to address Peace Corps’ three goals. Our specific focus on Java is English education and writing in to us will provide my students with an exciting opportunity to apply their language skills. What’s more, your message will help promote a better understanding of Americans 10,000 miles away in Indonesia. When we receive your postcard one of my students will write you back. Hopefully, you will come away having learned something about this fascinating country called Indonesia. The students and I sincerely appreciate your participation and we look forward to your postcard! Matthew Borden MAN Lumajang Jl. Citandui 75 Rogotrunan, Lumajang Jawa Timur 67315 Indonesia

                      She Works, She Lives! (Elle Travaille, Elle Vit! French, 2008) is a documentary that explores the role of women in Senegalese society and highlights the importance of girl’s education in particular. Each of the five Senegalese women interviewed for the film come from diverse backgrounds and followed distinct paths to get to where they are today. Some of them come from small villages while others come from urban environments, some from supportive families and others from less supportive families. But at some point in their lives, each of these five women realized that she had the potential to be more and to achieve more than what was expected of her. This documentary looks at the histories of these inspiring women, the feelings they have about their work and their upbringing, and their hopes for the future of women in Senegal. The film is being distributed to Peace Corps volunteers and schools throughout Senegal along with a packet of supplemental educational materials to facilitate discussions regarding the role of women in Senegalese society. Additionally, we are holding public screenings in Dakar, and are currently working to show it on local television stations. Copies are available to interested NGO's for their outreach reference libraries. The goal of this project is to continue the dialogue in Senegal regarding women in the workplace. With the help of SeneGAD, and funding from the US Embassy of Dakar, this film will be able to permeate local communities, encouraging sustainable change in gender perspectives for Senegalese society at large.
