==Peace Corps History==
 
 
During the time that Peace Corps had programs in this country it was called [[Zaire]]. The last volunteers and trainees were evacuated in September 1991. The Peace Corps Training Center located at the Institut Supérieur Pédagogique in Bukavu was used not only to train Zaire volunteers but also volunteers destined for other Francophone countries in Africa. Between 1988 and 1991 the programs in effect were: Public Health Education, Public Health Administration, Agriculture (limited, only in certain areas), Pisciculture (fish ponds), Water and Sanitation (capping springs, digging wells and building latrines). The Peace Corps Office was located in Kinshasa and every region had a regional house for volunteers to stay at when picking up their allowances which occurred once per quarter. The regional house for Bas Zaire (now Bas Congo) was moved in 1989 from Mbanza Ngungu to Matadi.
