Before serving in the Peace Corps, you have to decide what to bring with you for your extended time abroad. If you’re a future, current or returned volunteer, we invite you to send in photos of your favorite items you packed — practical, sentimental and everything in between — and include your country of service.

We’ll post the best photos on, along with more information on what Peace Corps volunteers should bring.

Send us your photos and country information by posting on Facebook or Instagram, tweeting us at #corpsgear or commenting with a photo link below.

Join the Devex community and access more in-depth analysis, breaking news and business advice — and a host of other services — on international development, humanitarian aid and global health.
