This US State Department-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is for 12 NGO leaders and managers from Syria exploring NGO Leadership in Times of Conflict.
The delegations program from Detroit, MI will explore best practices in disaster management and recovery. It will also address preparation, mobilization and coordination at all levels of government; the private sector; and non-governmental, community and civil society organizations. This project will illustrate whole-of-community preparedness, response and recovery through hands on activities alongside U.S. experts and citizens.
A lot of people spend half their lives to get the opportunity to meet the people that we met in just 10 days [in Detroit]. This concentration of knowledge and resources brought me one step closer to being global.
The opportunity to welcome and work with international delegations visiting Detroit provides a very rich experience. To be engaged in this work is significant and very rewarding. The world is becoming smaller every day and Global Ties Detroit contributes greatly in building strong bridges with people and nations across the globe.
