Alvin J. Hower, a former Peace Corps Volunteer and his wife Filipina wife Prima Guipo Hower have recently launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to raise funds and support for an inspiring new project, Peace Corps Photo Memoir, No Greater Service. The memoir is an action packed, personal, vivid, and fascinating book about Alvin’s experiences as a Peace Corps Volunteer. The title of this memoir is “No Greater Service – A Peace Corps Photo Memoir (Philippines 1969-1974). The couple welcomes generous support and backers for this project.
“I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Philippines for five and a half years, where I ate rats, fell off a moving truck, witnessed the death of a friend, taught children good nutrition at the three children feeding centers that I managed and operated, and photographed the indigenous people to raise funds from USAID, CARE, Catholic Relief Services, etc., to help combat illiteracy, poverty, and diseases,” wrote Alvin J. Hower, the author of No Greater Service, while introducing this project to the Kickstarter community. During the years of 1969-1974, Al Hower was a Peace Corps Volunteer who served in three positions, 1) assigned to teach at Notre Dame of Dadiangas College, 2) as Coordinator of Social Action in underserved barrios of the coastal city of General Santos, and 3) his last assignment was as Management Consultant at a Catholic Mission in the remote mountains of Surallah, South Cotabato.
