June 1, 2009
Global Foundation for Democracy and Development (GFDD), Fundación Global Democracia y Desarrollo (FUNGLODE) and the United Nations Association of the Dominican Republic (UNA-DR), in partnership with Haiti Action, will sponsor the Youth of the Americas Forum for Haiti (YAFH) and its subsequent Community Service Week (CSW), as part of their institutional Commitment to Action with the Clinton Global
Initiative University (CGI U). The Forum will be held August 13 – 21, 2009, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
YAFH will unite youth from the Dominican Republic, Haiti and across the world to foster the exchange of best practices and promote dialogue that will shape the design and implementation of development
projects in Haiti. More than 70 young leaders from the Western Hemisphere will join their Haitian peers to address multiple challenges impacting Haiti.
The Forum will take place within the framework of the Second Haitian Model United Nations Conference (SIMHANU 2009), which will be held August 13 –
15, 2009 at the Karibe Convention Center in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Community Service Week activities, scheduled to take place August 16 – 21, 2009 in different locations of the capital city, will promote partnerships to cultivate the next generation of action in Haiti.
