 Kevin Drumm, an East Greenwich native and URI International Engineering Program grad, will discuss his current Peace Corps Volunteer service in Peru. He has had previous international experiences starting with the Boy Scouts and at URI which greatly influenced his decision to join the Peace Corps and prepared him for the challenges he will face in career and life.

As result of recent heavy rains and flooding caused by the offshore effects of El Niño, all Peace Corps volunteers living on Peru’s northern coast (69 out about 200 total) were evacuated from the country to ensure their safety until conditions improve. For that reason, Kevin is home and using this opportunity to discuss life in a Peruvian village, including his work in water, sanitation, hygiene, and other activities such as English teaching and gender equity training.
