Upcoming International Groups for 2023

Transparency & Accountability, a Regional Project January 13th - January 19th, 2023
We are looking forward to hosting 10 international visitors from the countries of Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Palestinian Territories, Saudi Arabia, and Tunisia for this Near East and North Africa regional project. These individuals have various meetings planned where they will learn about effective practices for open, and accessible government, civil society efforts toward government transparency and accountability, and how NH works at implementing and enforcing “Right to Know” laws.

Deactivating Disinformation by Strengthening Media and Information Literacy, a Single Country Project                           
January 26th - February . 1st, 2023 
We are excited to host another diverse programming topic here in NH! We cannot wait to host 6 international visitors from Indonesia on the topic of deactivating disinformation. They will have the opportunity to meet with diverse NH organizations to see how they all work to teach NH community members on how to better decipher the messages from today's media. In a world where social media news is so prevalent, it is vital that we all have a skillset for media and information literacy.

Open World - Youth Development, a Single Country Project, February 3rd - February 11th, 2023
We will be hosting 5 international visitors from Tajikistan for our first Open World project in 2023. We are looking forward to hosting a group on the topic of youth development. It is important to note that Tajikistan has the most rapidly developing population of any former Soviet country. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet with many local NH organizations that connect to youth development in various ways. A few topics of interest will include: youth development in the workforce, environmental engagement and stewardship, equity and access for opportunities within minority groups, as well as diversity within school systems' course curriculum. 


In the past year WACNH has worked to navigate the challenges of the pandemic by working with the Office of International Visitors at the State Department and Global Ties U.S. During this time we have rapidly and successfully implemented IVLP Virtual Exchanges. While these will never replace in-person programming, it is proving to be a valuable tool for continuing to engage our global community in vital exchanges of ideas.

With many advances in vaccines, the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State has reinstated in-person IVLP programming to resume in Spring 2022. 

We were able to welcome back our first in-person program in April 2022 on the topic of  "Global and Regional Economic Cooperation". Our WACNH team will continue to also host virtual programs as they arise, and will do our best to produce top quality programs for exchange and further understanding for both our international visitors and local NH community members. 

Please note, the safety of U.S. citizens, as well as our international visitors, is a top priority. Additional updates will be provided as new information is received.
