I n an effort to support and represent the Dominican community, the Global Foundation for Democracy and Development (GFDD) and the Dominican Embassy to the White House organized a “meet and greet” event on July 16th.
Interns from the Dominican Embassy, IDB, IMF, OAS, World Bank, the White House, Departments of Agriculture and Commerce, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Congressional Hispanic Caucus, International Council on Disabilities, Office of Senators Robert Menendez and Chuck Shummer, Office of Congressmen Jose Serrano and Charles Rangel, and the Smithsonian Museum, joined GFDD at its successful event. The Celebration of Dominican Interns in Washington, D.C., created by Dominican Embassy, provided a unique opportunity to celebrate those Dominican interns working in the field of international development in Washington D.C. In addition, the interns had the chance to learn more about the joint efforts of GFDD, together with the Dominican Embassy, on how best to offer relevant and important contributions to the Dominican and International community. Executive Director of GFDD, Natasha Despotovic warmly welcomed all present to the first of many events to be convened at the GFDD’s new Washington, DC office location.
On behalf of GFDD, Ms. Despotovic thanked everyone for their active participation and urged young people to continue being part of these international organizations that encourage and help them acquire the necessary tools to be global citizens and tomorrow’s leaders.
Speaking on behalf of the Dominican Embassy to the White House, Ambassador Aníbal de Castro highlighted the relevance of young people’s participation in these types of gatherings, and their collaboration and cooperation on various projects that only serve to help strengthen relations between organizations with parallel aims.
The ongoing events are a part of GFDD’s goal to support collaboration and exchange between Dominicans in the home country and abroad, as well as the Dominicans in the greater Washington, D.C. Metro area. This kind of event also provides an excellent networking opportunity, and a chance to create alliances with similarly focused professionals for the ongoing exchange of experiences and possible development of joint projects and programs.
This is the first of a series of events GFDD will help arrange to develop international networks and with the view to strengthening relations in the Dominican, international, and diplomatic community.
