Micronesia

Peace Corps in the Federated States of Micronesia and Republic of Palau

There are more than 45 Volunteers in Micronesia working with their communities on projects in education, health, youth development, and community economic development. During their service, Volunteers learn to speak local languages, including Chuukese, Kosraean, Mortlockese, Pohnpeian, and Yapese. More than 4,340 Peace Corps Volunteers have served in Micronesia since the program was established in 1966.

I can think of no people as warm, welcoming, and wonderful as the people of Micronesia. The entire region--Palau, Yap, Chuuk, Pohnpei, Kosrae--is a marriage of humanity's best values (the importance of family, respect for others, cooperation over competition) juxtaposed with a natural environment equally grand in both biological diversity and heart-stopping beauty. If America incorporated some Micronesian thinking into its own cultural and political processes, I have no doubt we'd have a gentler, more representative republic.
