The PDF copy of the letter to the right was drafted by President Obama (in 2006 when he a was member of the U.S. Senate) urging the Director of the Peace Corps to reinstate the program in Sierra Leone. 

Several things are encouraging about this letterthat the need of Sierra Leone had the attention of a future president and that the review that followed this letter resulted in the reinstatement of the Peace Corps program in Sierra Leone.  The first group of 40+ education volunteers arrived in June 2010. 

SLVP, though not affiliated with the Peace Corps directly, is supportive of the program and looking forward to the positive work that can be accomplished by their re-entry into Sierra Leone.
