We hope that you found the conference informative and worthwhile. The primary goal of this conference was to bring together global Diaspora leaders and Haitian professionals as well as friends and partners of Haiti from around the world in an open dialogue, under one roof to discuss the issues facing our nation and to develop possible strategies as to how the Diaspora can become aware and more engaged in initiatives taking place in Haiti.
We believe that our diverse and dynamic group of speakers and panelists provided in-depth insight, as well as, actionable and practical tools of engagement models, methods and mechanisms (3Ms) that have worked in other countries; and were able to share how the 3Ms could be utilized to aid the Haitian Diaspora to become more effective in the on-going development efforts of Haiti in key areas such as: healthcare, investment, education and outreach.
Your presence helped to make this event a great success and your enthusiasm and positive spirit helped make our time together both productive and fun. We wish you all the best and hope that you continue to be engaged with the Haitian Diaspora and the NAHP. Stay tuned for upcoming events by visiting naahpusa.org.
As a reminder, we are working on transcribing the plenary sessions and workshop notes and once everything has been aggregated we invite you to visit the NAHP website to download the material.
