The Fallen Peace Corps Volunteers Memorial Project, Inc. is a non-profit corporation. It is independent of the U.S. Peace Corps and the National Peace Corps Association, though we are supportive of their missions and have been grateful to receive their encouragement since our inception in 2003.
The Fallen Peace Corps Volunteers Memorial Project began as a very personal project envisioned by Chelsea and Donna Mack and inspired by Jeremiah Mack. We maintain this website and a Facebook page, write and respond to letters and emails, attend events and memorial services when possible, and generally do what we can to support others who have also lost a loved one while serving in the Peace Corps and are seeking community. This work has helped us to heal and introduced us to so many wonderful people along the way. To learn a bit more about our origins, read here.
We welcome contributions of photos, stories, videos, etc. as we continue to build this archive and honor the individual and collective legacies of all Peace Corps Volunteers who died while in service. We are inspired by their stories, and hope you will be as well. We take comfort in the good that continues because they were here. And we dream that there may someday be a special place where we can all reflect on the beauty and impact of their lives and service.
“I do not know or care what terrorists and tyrants make of our monuments to democracy and the memorials we dedicate to our dead. What’s important is what the monuments and memorials say to us. They can teach us much about the ideas that unite us in our diversity, the values that sustain us in times of trial, and the dream that inspires generation after generation of ordinary Americans to perform extraordinary acts of service.”
