- Jan 2, 2005Hello and Happy New Year!
My name is L.A. I am a returned volunteer. I have been back in the
U.S. for about ten years, always thinking I would go back overseas
but "life" has a way of altering my plans.
Last November, I discovered a Dutch NGO doing amazing
community/economic development work ONLINE (really!). I found them

volunteer (not just Peace Corps) would find this site exciting and
