The Moz group goes back to their homes, some as little as 20 minutes away. Moz has the one of the highest completion of service records in all of PC as well as extending service. Their group which is #15 had 80 people in it and lost one. Swaziland, which of course is very tiny in size compared to Moz, only has about 60 PCV in country. Swaziland has one of the highest ET (Early Termination) rates and very few extend. One of the main reasons is HIV prevalence and the culture and Swazi men. Without going into direct criticism of the country I live in, lets just say women don’t have it easy here at all and since the majority of my group is women it is easy to see why the ET rate is high here.

Plus, there is no BEACHES.
