This US State Department-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is for fifteen religious and community advocates from Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, and Niger, exploring ways to combat terrorism and the terrorist networks that are taking root. And provide participants an opportunity to learn about strategic planning and explore government and civil society organizations in the United States that seek to tackle similar issues.
The delegations program from Detroit, MI will provide participants with a deeper understanding of community‑based efforts designed to build strong community resistance to violent extremism and promote tolerance and how different sectors of American society work together to resist violent extremism.
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.
