After 11 weeks of intensive language and cross-cultural training, a new class 23 Peace Corps volunteers was sworn in at the Retaj hotel, Moroni, yesterday. The Chargé d’affairs, along with Peace Corps Comoros Country Director, Randa Wilkinson, led the swearing-in ceremony, which was attended by volunteers, their host families, the media and representatives of the Comorian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Education. The volunteers performed a traditional Comorian dance called “Dandarou” and three volunteers made remarks in the local dialects of Ngazidja, Moheli and Anjouan, on behalf of their colleagues.



  • During the July 4th reception, Ambassador Yamate referenced the first commercial treaty between the United States and present-day Comoros in 1879. In the 138 years since, the relationship between our nations has grown and blossomed. Happy Independence Day!
