What logo styles do you like (image + text, image only, text only, etc.)
We already have a CorpsAfrica logo, so are looking to incorporate it into our "Pay it Forward" campaign. There could possibly be an arrow to illustrate paying it forward. Or maybe three little people, similar to those in our logo, colored red/white/blue, morphing into the current ones. You could even incorporate the colors of the African flag (black, white, yellow, green, red, blue). Just some suggestions. Looking forward to seeing your ideas!

How many of you RPCVs out there still get a wave of gratitude every time you think back on your Peace Corps experience? How many of you wish there was something really special you could do to honor your service? Ponder no longer! This is your chance to give back by donating to CorpsAfrica, a transformative experience by Africans for Africans along the lines of the Peace Corps model. This means we can finally say Yes! to those questions we all get from host-country nationals who ask to be PCVs like us.
CorpsAfrica is a nonprofit organization whose goal is to have 250 volunteers in each African state in ten years time thats 13,500 volunteers across Africa. But we cannot do it without you. We are starting with 10 volunteers in Morocco in September, and still need an extra monetary boost to get them trained and heading to their villages. Part of the pre-service training will include a 3-week internship program with local organizations, and they will continue to be mentored and aided by our nonprofit and for-profit sponsors. The program will be one year long, and CorpsAfrica will assist them with finding further employment opportunities when they finish.
CorpsAfrica is not meant to replace Peace Corps, but rather complement it we will place many of our volunteers near PCVs so they can work together. CorpsAfrica will eventually have African volunteers serve in other African countries, creating a continent filled with deep connections similar to the personal and professional network all RPCVs benefit from. CorpsAfrica will thus not only encourage development, but also institute networks of peace.
By donating to CorpsAfrica, you will help sponsor the first African volunteers, and can feel good about being part of the inauguration of this amazing effort. We need your help to believe in the program, in the Africans, and in the countries where they will be serving. We need your help to start a movement within the Peace Corps community, to pay it forward, and create a sustaining volunteer movement within Africa. Will you honor your service, and pay it forward to CorpsAfrica?
