    The sidebar says 7 attended, since it can only count those of us who reported attending after the event. There were actually more than 50 there. The speaker had special value to me. He talked about "social entrepreneurship" and its relationship to entrepreneurship--the process of creating ex-nihilo new innovative institutions of social value in communities where there are few NGOs helping the people build structures to transform their existing poverty into healthy productivity. I hope to work in community-based tourism, a hybrid of social entrepreneurship and business when the Peace Corps sends me to Paraguay May 29 as a "Community Economic Development Promoter." Do I know what I am going to do there? No, but the Director of Training for Paraguay has already written to me telling me about a new PC program in Paraguay starting mentoring trainees even before the staging date, offering a currently-serving PCV on the ground in Paraguay, to be my mentor while I am here.

    Good match between the speaker and the peace prize recipient. Both are involved in social entrepreneurship. 4 the World is doing good work in the third world and deserves prize.

    I felt proud of all our RPCV's and what they have done to ally with other groups who share our vision and values, through the Peace Prize. It was a relaxed reception with good finger food well prepared and presented, and a good way to let others know about the Peace Corps and its commitments. It's also a great way to get our people together. Thanks to the leadership.
