Erik Nitsche: 25 Years Peace Corps in Marshall Islands
Artist: Erik Nitsche
As with many beginnings, the Peace Corps started rather humbly with only 900 volunteers in 1961. But when U.S. President John F. Kennedy signed the Peace Corps Act of 1961, he initiated an organization which today has reached over 60 countries and has some 6,000 volunteers. In 1966, the Peace Corps -- whose mission is to assist countries develop agriculture, health, trade and technology -- came to the Republic of the Marshall Islands. Since the beginning, Corps members have worked alongside the Marshallese in many capacities. Today, the tradition of sharing and helping for the betterment of mankind continues in the Marshall Islands and all around the world.
The artwork hightlights the Marshallese Flag and the Dove of Peace.
This painting originally appeared on the MIPS® Mint Stamp for the Marshall Islands 29¢ Peace Corp issue of November 26, 1991.
