Welcome to my Mauritania page
I was a Peace Corps volunteer in Mauritania from June, 2003, to
August, 2005. Mauritania is an African country situated on the
Atlantic coast of the continent between Morocco and Senegal.
After undergoing 3 months of training (known
as stage in francophone countries like Mauritania) in the
city of Kaedi, I was sent to Nouakchott, the capital. I was
an information and communications technology (ICT) volunteer, which
is a subsection of small enterprise development (SED).
I was involved in a variety of projects over the course of my
service, including: consulting with national and international
organizations on the use of technology; building databases for
micro-finance organizations; providing technical support to a
group of rural computer centers; and teaching a variety of
computer skills to Mauritanians.
If your interested in a peek at my life in Mauritania,
I've created a few slide shows with pictures and descriptions
of the experience.
