Peace Corps Nigeria Alumni Foundation

If you're looking for support and ideas for teaching about Nigeria and about global issues, the Peace Corps Nigeria Alumni Foundation (PCNAF) has some to offer.

Peace Corps Nigeria Alumni Foundation: Helping the people of Nigeria build a brighter future for themselves through education.

PCNAF president Albert Hannans told me that not only do they have links to many teaching materials on their web site (Resources for Teachers) but they are willing to help find materials and ideas for your classroom. This is especially helpful if you're near Washington, D. C. (arrange a guest speaker?).

I was especially excited to see a couple familiar names among those recommended on PCNAF web site. I met Bob Hanvey and David King when I used materials they created while teaching world studies and conflict resolution.

Check out the resources they've gathered. And contact them. E-mail them at info@pcnaf.org or write them at PCNAF, P.O. Box 18514, Washington, DC 20036-9998. Alternatively, you can call them at (703) 924-1474

If it's too late this year to make use of their resources and help, put this note in a prominent place so you'll see it next year when planning how to teach about Nigeria.
