About Peru

Peace Corps history in Peru.

The Peace Corps initiated its program in Peru in 1962, where over 2,600 Volunteers contributed to various sectors. Operations ceased in 1975 due to political and economic instability. In 2001, Peruvian Government invited the Peace Corps back, citing its role in his personal development. After assessments in 2001-2002, a country agreement was signed in March 2002. Operations resumed in August 2002, with over 1400 Volunteers serving in Peru since then.
