Make the world better, US Ambassador Kenny tells Peace Corps

Negros Occidental (10 November) -- "Make things happen and make whatever part of the world you are in better."

This is the gist of United States Ambassador Kristie Kenny's message to the 65 United States Peace Corps volunteers during their Swearing In ceremony at the Provincial Capitol recently.

The new volunteers are part of the 8,000 US Peace Corps volunteers who have worked in the Philippines.

US Ambassador Kenny thank the local government officials who have warmly welcomed her and her entourage and for allowing the US Embassy to hold ceremony in the province.

The volunteers were cited by the Ambassador for coming to the Philippines with their talent, capacity and willingness to give.

Get as much as you give. Seize the opportunity. Learn a lot about the Philippines, about its great people, extraordinary diversity and learn about yourself. Be someone whose mission, compassion and care go beyond your day to day job, Kenny urged the volunteers before they take their oath.

" And you will give much more than you know because you will inspire others. Show people that one person can make the difference," Kenny told the volunteers as they told them to roll up their sleeves, figuratively because of the weather and literally, as they begin their work in the Philippines.

When asked by local media here if there will be major changes with President-elect Barak Obama winning the seat for US Presidency, Kenny said she expects things to be the same.

Kenny also cleared reports that the call center industry in the Philippines will be affected now that Obama is elected to power.

The call center business-employee relationship is strong and that trade employees, right people is good for America and good for the Philippines, Kenny told reporters. (PIA/EAD) [top]
