I spent Aug. 11 to 19 in Guyana working with interface representatives of government, non-governmental agencies, local communities, academic community, and the private sector and to identify key issues to promote sustainable forestry and land use. Both the Partners of the Americas and the U.S. Embassy in Guyana helped to sponsor this trip.
On Friday July 5, 2013, Partners launched our EducaFuturo program in Panama. The launch was a big success, and we are excited to begin working on the ground.
Steve Vetter, Partners’ President & CEO, traveled to Panama to participate in the inaugural launch of the EducaFuturo program. In his keynote remarks, he addressed the positive social and economic impact the program plans to have in both Ecuador and Panama by eliminating child labor in each country.
On May 23-24, Partners of the Americas and the Colorado Chapter of Partners hosted the What Works conference to celebrate all of the great work done by our volunteers and chapters over the last 50 years. The conference was the perfect combination of celebrating the past and planning for the future.
Leading up to Partners' "What Works" Regional Meeting, we will be featuring a series of "What Works" blog posts to share the outstanding projects, programs, and methodologies that our chapters worked on this past year. Read below to find out what worked for the North Carolina/Cochabamba Partnership!
