Jacob Moore ’12 was a volunteer in the Peace Corps in Cameroon from 2012-2015. He continued working as an Agribusiness consultant in Cameroon, helping rural farmers boost their income by adding value to crops. He is also the founder of a sustainable community garden that helps feed five villages in Cameroon, in addition to teaching modern agricultural techniques to local farmers.
Jake and three other former Peace Corps volunteers have created and implemented an American NGO, ScholarShop Africa, which aims to improve the teaching and learning of students in Cameroon. ScholarShop helps students earn credits toward needed supplies for school or food by doing community work to earn these points.
