MNRPCV Host Countries

WHERE HAVE MNRPCV MEMBERS SERVED?

Over 6000 Minnesotans have served in the Peace Corps since 1961. A survey of the 220 current MNRPCV Members shows that they have served in 80 different countries. Looking at our service history by regions shows that 92 of our 220 Members served in Africa; 31 in Eastern Europe, 29 in South America, 22 in the Pacific Islands, 17 in Central America, 12 in Asia, 12 in the Caribbean, 9 in Central Asia, 6 in the Indian Subcontinent, and 1 in the Mideast. More MNRPCV Members have served in Kenya (13) than in any other country. If you add up the numbers, you will get more than 220, because we have two members who have served in three countries as well as five who have served in two countries each.
