On June 4th, the National Peace Corps Association announced the winner of this year's Sargent Shriver Award for Distinguished Humanitarian Service, which recognizes a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer who "continues to make a sustained and distinguished contribution, whether that be to humanitarian causes at home, abroad, or through innovative social entrepreneurial efforts to bring about significant, long term-change."
The 2013 winner of this national honor is our own Phil Lilienthal, Founder and President of Global Camps Africa.
The award will be presented at this year's Peace Corps Connect in Boston, MA, on June 29th. Congratulations, Phil, on this well-deserved honor!
