The Friends of India are Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) who served in India from 1961-1976, their families and friends, their Indian supervisors and counterparts, former Peace Corps/India staff and anyone who might have an interest in India and Peace Corps. We are a non-profit organization.    

FOI has three goals:

(1) to continue to expand our understanding of India, 

(2) provide a channel of communication and information via our newsletter and secure website,

(3) to increase awareness and support of Indian charities. 

This web site complements our quarterly Friends of India Newsletter and supports our goals.
