Some might argue that the peace corps does not need any more people and should focus on the way things ought to be in other more direct agencies that will help the people in a more affective way. They should not waste more resources on them for now at least.

Many rape survivors have come forward reporting their hardships, which should make us question the Peace Corps and its safety for American citizens. Once the Peace Corps addresses these issues and creates a safer experience, then it would be prudent to increase its members.
