Living Allowance Survey 2017

Things don't cost what they used to any more. We understand, but Peace Corps can't pay you more if they don't understand your needs. So fill out the 2017 Living Allowance Survey and get 5000/= tsh on your next paycheck! What? Bia mbili baridi and all you need to do is open excel and spitball the cost of a parachichi? Kumbe.
