Peace Corps Associate Director Visits Nepal to Announce Volunteers’ Return

KATHMANDU: Peace Corps Associate Director of the Office of Global Operations, Scott Beale, arrived for a two-day trip to Nepal as part of a visit to the region.

While in Kathmandu, Associate Director Beale will meet with government and civil society representatives to discuss the plans to return Peace Corps Volunteers to Nepal.

After the global evacuation of Volunteers in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Peace Corps is planning to return Volunteers to the country in early 2023. Peace Corps first established operations in Nepal in September 1962.

Since that time, nearly 4,000 Americans have served in Nepal working in multiple sectors and across the country. At the time of the global evacuation in March 2020 due to COVID-19, Peace Corps had 124 Volunteers and trainees working in the areas of agriculture, health, and education.
