Babila Lima ’02 and his Peace Corps experience

Alumni

In his Peace Corps experience, Babila Lima '02, worked on economic community development in Mongolia.

Lima’s service in Mongolia allowed him to take on various notable projects. He established a business social responsibility program through which local businesses and government removed 32 kilograms of trash and recyclable material from town streets on a monthly basis. Program participants incorporated concepts from training on uses of public service and corporate responsibility as vehicles for marketing and branding.

“Peace Corps taught me a foreign language, how to build a network in a new community, and how to use the former in the service of the latter.”

Through his time with Peace Corps, Babila gained abilities and strengths central to leadership — active listening, focus, keen observation, and awareness of his surroundings. He is currently in the process of applying to law school.

“I wanted to take an active role in representing the U.S. abroad. Peace Corps was a threefold gift; it: 1) provided the opportunity to enhance mutual understanding, 2) imparted some of the tools necessary for success and, 3) introduced me to other agencies and professionals outside of the U.S. Peace Corps who were representing American interests overseas.”
