Story of Ron Stitt with Ghassem

Shared by Behnam Khosravan on November 11, 2019
Ghassem was the English teacher in Ghoochan when I first arrived as a peace corps volunteer.  
There were two of us and we were the first pc people in ghoochan.
So this was Ghassem’s first interaction with the peace corps.
The other volunteer, Mike griffin, was also an English teacher and I was there for community development programs.
I helped create the first public library there, led the building of a new school in a nearby village, as well as a few other programs.
Ghassem was not only helpful as an interpreter, but got involved in all aspects of these community programs.
He was a very respected member of the community and I simply could not have imagined the success of these programs without his help.  We spent a lot of time together and I thought of him as a very close friend.  He went on from there, after I left, to get more involved with the peace corps and I understand made a lot more friends in the pc organization.
