Photo: Carolina graduate student Charlotte Lane sits with residents of the village where she did her Peace Corps work. Her work included establishing nutrition education programs, gardening lessons and the “Let Girls Learn” initiative. But the project she takes the most pride in is a well dug through 17 meters of granite. It’s her favorite because people in her village solved problems, managed the heavy machinery and made the well a success.
Charlotte Lane left her heart in West Africa. But she will return there to begin her life’s work after honing her knowledge and research skills at Carolina as part of the Graduate School’s Royster Society of Fellows.
