Global Summitt on AID Programs . This summit will be occurring from today till Thursday. Global foreign aid and assistance has not reached its potential and has yet to be effectively applied.

I've written about it before late last summer and discussed the logistical challenges to stopping it.
Associates of American Foreign Service Award Winner in Kenya. This award rewards volunteerism abroad. These are great stories about the power of motivated and compassionate individuals. The Association might also be an organization that my fellow FAOs would be interested in joining.
