Women of Peace Corps Legacy (WPCL) is a 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to advance women and girls empowerment to create a better, more just, equitable, inclusive and safe world for future generations. We have a small board and several working groups that meet virtually and face-to-face. We do not seek to create programs but to partner with and highlight the work of those existing organizations and programs that are effectively addressing the issues of women and girls. We aspire to represent all those women whose lives have been positively affected by Peace Corps, those currently serving, and those who have served over the last 60 plus years.
We envision a diverse Peace Corps community supporting the empowerment and education of women and girls globally.
Community, empowerment, intergenerational community, celebration
