AFSC Fellowship Experience

It has been two months since I started the fellowship at the Pan Valley Institute and so far it has been a great experience! I enjoy working with the staff here and learning form them.  In these two months I have been able to learn about the amazing work that the Pan Valley Institute of the American Friends Service Committee does and the impact that it has in the community.

I have been learning about Proyecto Campesino; its beginning, its evolution and its ending.  I am truly convinced that the work of AFSC-whether it be through Proyecto or the Pan Valley Institute, or any of its national programs- has a tremendous impact in our communities.

In the coming months I plan to work in the Tulare County area visiting with indigenous communities living in the area and generating a dialogue about life in the Tulare county.  I will also seek to understand how these communities organize and if there are needs that are not being addressed by local organizations.
