    Kenya

    Friends of Kenya was incorporated in 1985 and has 300 Kenya RPCV's as members.

    We are planning a DC-based celebration for 50 years of Peace Corps in Kenya. It will be held on Thursday, Dec 11, 2014. So, SAVE THE DATE. We are also invited to the Kenya embassy's Jamhuri Day celebration on Friday, Dec 12. Check our www.facebook.com/PeaceCorpsKenya50 site for details but also send names, email addresses and dates of service to Carolyn Kari, carolynkari@earthlink.net, so I can put you on the official invitation list. Asante.

    Hey Arvis, the new site doesn’t allow direct private messaging.

    The person you want to contact must interact with the site publicly, such as leaving a comment, and have a Facebook or Twitter account connected to his or her profile. Then you click that person’s name and a little icon will appear where you can contact them through their social media account.

    Now, we could adopt a policy where any member can submit a request to contact another through an intermediary on the board, but I’m not sure how reliable that process would be.
