Watch the Egyptian, Moroccan and Tunisian Fellows from our most recent exchange program in Seattle and Washington D.C.! The 2017 theme of our Professional Fellows Program is NGO development. This summer, Seattle- and D.C.-based organizations focused on persons with disabilities graciously hosted 10 fellows for one month. While Fellows had fun exploring American culture through dialogue, home-stays, and site-seeing, they also learned valuable networking, management, and advocacy skills to bring back to their home countries and enhance the inclusiveness of disabled persons in their communities.
Thank you to all the host organizations, the State Department, and of course all our supporters for another successful exchange program! This fall of 2017, we will continue our program of NGO development with a focus on women’s empowerment in Chicago, Seattle, and Washington D.C.
