= Huge collection of downloadable development resources for in-country and soon-to-be volunteers: Public Health, Small Business, Education, Agriculture, etc. Plenty of resources for primary and secondary projects. =

I used and distributed this information widely during my service. It was incredibly helpful and gave me and the people I shared it with an exhaustive library of useful development resources. Most of these can be used as teaching tools or to set-up secondary projects at site. If you haven't left the states yet, definitely grab this information before you leave in case you're without power and internet at site. For those of you at site, and you're in an area that has cybercafes or schools with computers, take a day to install this information to their systems and spend a few hours teaching them how to access it all. It helps drive free education and computer-literacy in the schools, and it can help drive business to the cafes. And I always got a free lunch or dinner out of it

This is the individual subject index I used as a PCV. In case you don't want to download
*everything,* this is a great place to pick and choose one or many individual resources. Just click the link and scroll through 13GB of development booklets, construction guides, education and training resources, etc. Everything you might possibly need to getdone at site. Need something to motivate your primary project? Looking for a secondary project? This is where you'll find it

The stuff covers agriculture, forestry, fisheries, food processing, construction, health, water and sanitation, appropriate technology, alternative energy, ecology, education and a host of other subjects. This material is not only useful for third world citizens but also for westerners trying some self sufficiency or keeping a local non-internet backup in case civilization collapses - we are strong with survivalists. There are about 6000 ebooks in the 6 dvds, about 26 GB in total

Good luck out there!
