(3)

We actively try to connect with RPCVs living in Hawai'i through our webpage, our ongoing activities and many opportunities to engage in projects that align with Peace Corps' Third Goal - to bring the world home. In light of Peace Corps' values, we support the Department of Land and Natural Resources efforts to clean the Kawainui Marsh on O'ahu's Windward side with monthly volunteer time; we support the statewide outreach of Hawai'i Public Radio by answering phones during the semi-annual pledge drives; and we join other organizations for beach clean-ups, fundraising walks, and food drives. We also connect and reconnect with RPCVs on O'ahu at monthly "Pau Hana" gatherings at local watering holes, host the Annual August BBQ / Picnic at Magic Island, and at the Holiday Fundraiser on the first Sunday of December at the Soul de Cuba Restaurant & Bar, owned by an RPCV.

Mission: The Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Hawaii (RPCVHI) are dedicated to continuing the spirit of Peace Corps. We volunteer our skills and knowledge, endeavoring to make a difference through community service. We share our rich cross-cultural experience to communicate positive imagery of people, cultures and countries. We gather to serve, have fun, and enjoy our shared experience. We provide support to currently serving PCVs from the State of Hawai'i.

President Trump proposed a $9.3 million cut in baseline funding for the #PeaceCorps for Fiscal Year 2021. His proposal—sent to Congress earlier today—would provide $401.2 million for the agency, down from the current $410.5 million #budget.

The request marks only the second time in the nearly 60-year history of the Peace Corps in which a president has proposed cutting agency funding for four consecutive years. In the previous three years, Congress responded by restoring the proposed cuts. However, the end result has been five consecutive years of flat funding for the agency. Learn more:

Aloha RPCVs,
Martin Luther King Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service, to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities.

In keeping with this them, and following Peace Corps' tradition of volunteer service, RPCVHI will participate in the Beach Clean- Up day, sponsored by the Kokua Foundation on Monday, January 20, 2020. There are two locations: Kahuku - James Campbell Wildlife Sanctuary, and Kalama Beach Park in Kailua.

RPCV Health Crusade - Health Survey 2019

RPCV Health Crusade is a newly formed volunteer group of RPCVs who came together to focus on the health and well-being of PCVs and RPCVs. In the spirit that drew us to service, we came together to see how we can make a difference within our own RPCV community. We believe that there are volunteers currently serving in the Peace Corps that could have better health experiences and also believe there is very little in place to support the health of RPCVs after service.

We created a health survey:

(https://surveys.rpcvhealthcrusade.org/682425) with the following goals in mind:

to give the PCV and RPCV community a voice in identifying our own health needs;
to provide visibility in health trends and patterns within the community;
to create a more complete picture of the overall health of the community;
to give RPCV Health Crusade guidance in focusing our efforts (education, advocacy, support, etc.) and developing programs that generate the greatest benefit;
to help establish a baseline of the current state of our community to track potential changes over time

Please help us distribute this health survey (https://surveys.rpcvhealthcrusade.org/682425), our goal is to reach as many PCVs and RPCVs as possible.

The survey responses will be kept anonymous (there is no personally-identifiable information) and will not be sold or shared with any other group or organization including NPCA or PC. The survey should only take about 10-20 minutes to complete and could contribute to a potential world of difference to the overall RPCV community.

Aloha all 💚 I am a current PCV in Benin and am a former Hawaii resident (UH alum, rainbow wahine). I am reaching out for assistance in my project that will help rural women, assist malnourished children, sequester carbon dioxide, and increase public health and wellness. The women in my village want to create a small enterprise transforming the plant moringa into a powder that can be sold and consumed by the community. If you can donate or spread the word, please do so. Mahalo&merci!
Hey RPCVHI! I'll be on Oahu for a few days while I defend my thesis at UH💪 does anyone have a spare (automatic) vehicle I can rent? I'd much rather pay a friend than a corporation. Dates are 3/4 - 3/7ish. See you all at the March Pau Hana!!!
Hey RPCVs of Hawai'i. My name is Cedar (RPCV Namibia/Philippines, former PC staff, PC Oral History). I have a job interview for US Fish and Wildlife on Wednesday for Honolulu. I'm reaching out to see if anyone would be willing to chat with me about life in Hawai'i. My cell is 970-765-8060. Thanks!
