29Loss of WWF assignment
- Aug 21, 2002This is a quick update regarding my status as a Peace Corps Trainee.
1. I did not meet with the country director at 3:00 p.m. yesterday
for he was out of the office. The meeting was rescheduled for 8:00
a.m. today (Wednesday, August 21, 2002).
2. The country director said that after meeting with my counterpart
from the World Wildlife Fund (my assignment) on Monday to discuss why
I was not sworn in, the WWF rescinded their invitation to have me
serve as a volunteer.
3. Since I no longer have a site assignment, the Peace Corps will
have to find me a new assignment.
4. If they cannot find me an assignment, the Peace Corps will send me
Also, they want me to move into a hotel today. I'm currently living
with a host family in Grove (an hour away from Georgetown) and was
scheduled to move in to my new home in Georgetown tomorrow. So I
have to head back to Grove to pack. They pick me up at 2:30 p.m.
