Breaking Bread is a series of personal stories of Peace Corps volunteers and their journeys to integrate into the communities in which they were placed. Each story illustrates the challenges faced by Peace Corps volunteers of earning trust, gaining understanding and sharing lives. Storytellers will relate their compelling experiences for 10 minutes each and then discuss with the audience.
