The Millennium Challenge Corp. and Peace Corps have signed an agreement to increase their cooperation in assisting developing nations.
The accord delves into the possible role of Peace Corps volunteers in implementing MCC compacts. The assistance provided by Peace Corps volunteers will help build long-term capacity of partner countries, the MCC said in a news release.
The pact also indicates that MCC and the Peace Corps will collaborate on “complementary program areas and agency priorities.”
The Peace Corps may assign volunteers to help develop and implement training schemes, community outreach programs, HIV/AIDS prevention efforts and management information systems, or provide other types of support related to MCC-funded programs.
The two organizations likewise aim to set up a joint working group to provide guidance on their cooperation.
