Circle of Writers

Founded by Mary Cinadr (originally from Clifton Park), Circle of Writers teaches the art of writing, while expanding the whole person, through an experimental and comfortable online environment.  We help both new and experienced writers discover and hone their unique writing “voices,” learn to give and receive constructive feedback, and craft their life experiences into meaningful pieces of writing.

Quolaquoe Mountain Connections

Peace Corp Volunteer Lynn Minderman served in the Qholaqhoe Mountain region of Lesotho in 2007-2008 and was witness to the abject poverty, devastating effects of HIV/AIDS, high unemployment, constant hunger of the population of orphans in the region and the barriers to education experienced by the high school aged population due, in part, to a tuition based system.

Qholaqhoe Mountains Connections is a response to Lynn’s experiences there.  It is, quite simply, an effort to improve the lives of children orphaned by the ravages of AIDS and to help lift the country’s young people out of abject poverty through educational opportunities.

Our mission is to benefit the people of Qholaqhoe, Lesotho by providing financial grants to fund education, cultivate sustainable farming practices, and to alleviate hunger.

One thought on “Our Officers & Members

  1. Greetings RPCV’s in NE New York,

    Some of you may be returning from service and considering your career moves. If you find that you need a master’s degree or higher to attain your goals, please look into Arizona State University’s Coverdell Fellowship. We have programs that include; business, social science programs, and education.

    As an added bonus, you will be able to avoid the sub-zero temperatures of New York if you decide that ASU has what you’re looking for.

    Best Regards,
    Chris Ammon

    P.S. Yesterday’s temperature was 72 degrees.
