Lee Klejnot, OLS ’05, is working with the Peace Corps in the eastern Caribbean on the island of St. Lucia. Some of his recent work has included developing a local Creole tourism product to provide economic activity for the fishing village of Canaries in preparation for the 20,000 tourists expected for the Cricket World Cup. Other projects include working with the Anse La Liberte Sea Turtle Sanctuary and the St. Lucia National Trust to develop the 133-acre preserve near Canaries into a sea turtle sanctuary and bungalows of eco-tourism; the Canabelle Soap Co-op to help unemployed women produce all-natural soap; renovating an old church to turn the building into a craft and gift market; and the Rabbit Project, which provides training, rabbits and supplies to boost the income of the poorest families in the village.
