Rwanda and the Entrepreneurial Society
Upon first examination, Rwanda does not seem an ideal place for business investment and development. However, it has emerged in the past several years as a beacon of investment opportunity. This report explores the reason American investors and businesses would want to take a chance on Rwanda.
Rebuilding Rwanda: From Genocide to Prosperity through Education
Rwanda is on the verge of a breakthrough. Having weathered one of the worst humanitarian crises imaginable just fifteen years ago, and with an impoverished countryside plagued by HIV/AIDS, hunger, and malaria, Rwanda seems an unlikely place for an economic renaissance. Yet the nation's commitment to good government and support for free market solutions place it as among the most likely countries to see rapid advancement in the coming decades. Such a future is far from guaranteed, and whether it comes to fruition depends largely on the country's system of education.
This report presents a thorough background on Rwanda's education system, catalogues the most up-to-date educational statistics available for Rwanda, discusses the current efforts underway to transform Rwanda through education, and suggests effective means of getting involved.

Perspectives of Volunteers on the Peace Corps at 50
The Peace Corps is a story of contrasts. It emerged late in the 1960 presidential campaign, yet ignited one
of the most instantaneous responses. It promoted a spirit of youthful idealism, while generating controversy
among seasoned policymakers. It was a risky experiment, but held the promise of transforming how millions
of people abroad viewed America and how hundreds of thousands of Americans engaged in the world. It is the
most enduring legacy of a short-lived presidency.
Fifty years later, the story of the Peace Corps continues to be told and retold through many books and articles
and even a YouTube channel. We believe, however, that the most important storytellers are the voices of
Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) themselves, speaking over the decades since its formation in 1961
to the present day.
When we discovered that there had never been a large-scale, independent, nationally representative survey of the more
than 200,000 volunteers who experienced the Peace Corps, we set out to listen to these individuals who helped shape and
define the organization's first 50 years.
