Virtual Service:

The Virtual Service Pilot connects qualified U.S. citizens with host country counterparts to meet partner requests in new ways – from supplementing on-the-ground Volunteer efforts to reaching regions where Volunteers cannot go. Participants collaborate virtually with counterparts to complete project tasks, donating 5-15 hours per week for 3-6 months.

As Peace Corps Comoros has not had Volunteers since evacuation in 2020, Virtual Service provides opportunities for Post to continue supporting host country partners. The Government of Comoros and the Ministry of Education are implementing a recently established national English language education strategy and have requested the support of Peace Corps Comoros in that domain. Peace Corps coordinates with the Ministry of Education and other host country partners to develop Virtual Service Pilot projects focused on the teaching and learning of English. Some of these expressed needs are met through the efforts of interested local associations or NGOs.
