As a Peace Corps Volunteer assigned to the village of Wanzuzu, students playing the Peace Corps Challenge game are faced with many challenges they must solve using realistic solutions. In this challenge, players find themselves suddenly seen as tree experts by those in the village. They must move through the village finding community members who give them advice on which tree will be most beneficial. By weighing different opinions and needs, players must recommend to the community elders a tree to plant that meets not only the needs of the community, but also keep the local ecosystem healthy.
