Peace Corps Volunteers Find Meaning (And Each Other)

D. Drury & Sons

Asifa Kanji and David Drury came from very different parts of the world, but somehow managed to find each other. 

And they were determined to share their love and talents with the world, so off to Mali they went, as Peace Corps volunteers. 

Being hot and dry turned out to be the least of the issues, as a coup forced their evacuation from the country. 

But before that, rich experiences filled them up... experiences they share in the dual memoir Three Hundred Cups of Tea and The Toughest Job.  

David and Asifa call the Rogue Valley home (sometimes); they visit the studio to share their stories.
