Board members attend event at African Union Mission in Washington, D.C.

On February 28th three ACFA Board members attended a special event “Home Away from Home” in Washington, DC presented by the African Union featuring the Peace Corps, the U.S. Department of State, USAID and the International diaspora Engagement Alliance.  The keynote speaker was Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield who recently retired after a 35 year career with the U.S. Foreign Service and who served as the Assistant Secretary for the Bureau of African Affairs.  The Honorable H.E. Dr. Arikana Chihombori-Quao, the African Union Ambassador to the U.S., made welcome remarks as did Ms. Katherine Stroker, Deputy Chief Executive Director of the Peace Corps.  It was a very interesting event – especially meeting the panelist who had been a Peace Corps volunteer in Mali.
