Peace Corps Tonga Annual Report 2021-2022

Peace Corps Tonga is excited to share our Peace Corps Tonga Annual Report 2021-2022. A big thank you to all of our partners here in Tonga including the Ministry of Education and Training Tonga , the Free Wesleyan Church Education Office and all of our other mission school partners, and our partners throughout the communities of Tonga that have collaborated with Peace Corps Tonga and throughout the history of Peace Corps in Tonga. Additionally, we would like to express our thanks to the many individuals and organizations that have partnered with us over the past year and more. Our work is only possible through the partnerships and collaboration with school staff and community members and we are ever so appreciative for the continued support. The stories included in this report represent these partners and while there are many, many more we hope that this report provides an excellent look for everyone to see the collaborative work between Tonga and the Peace Corps.
