The Peace Corps continued its Thought Leaders series with a virtual gathering on July 21. Four returned Volunteers — all professionals in technology — provided their viewpoints on leveraging technology to maximize effects in socioeconomic development, and how Peace Corps Volunteers can shape global development.
Peace Corps staff member Yussif Alhassan is a programming and training specialist for the education sector in Ghana. In that role, he provides technical and programmatic support to Volunteers working in schools, and has worked with six Deaf or Hard of Hearing (DHH) Volunteers. As the Peace Corps celebrates Deaf Awareness Week, we sat down with Yussif to ask him about his experience in Ghana.
