Ukraine Members of Parliament - March 8th - March 15th 2024

In March, we have the honor of hosting our first in-person project for 2024 in New Hampshire. Organized by the Congressional Office of International Leadership (COIL), this transformative initiative brings together five esteemed Members of Parliament from Ukraine. During their stay, our Ukrainian guests will not only engage in vital discussions with local officials on legislative integrity, citizen protection, and governance transparency, but they will also experience the warmth and hospitality of our local community. By staying in the homes of our fellow community members, they'll have the unique opportunity to forge personal connections and gain a deeper understanding of American life.

Rule of Law and the U.S. Judicial System a Multi-Regional Project - March 9th - March 14th, 2024

In March, New Hampshire is set to welcome a diverse delegation from Albania, Argentina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Gambia, Kosovo, Kuwait, Romania, Slovak Republic, Spain, and Sri Lanka for an IVLP project focused on U.S. commitment to transparency, ethics, and judicial independence in democracy. Participants will gain insights into the principles underlying the U.S. judicial system, federalism, victim protection mechanisms, trial procedures, and court administration through engagements and court observations.

Promoting Transparency and Accountability in Government Institutions, a Single Country Project for Albania- March 10th - March 12th, 2024

In March, New Hampshire anticipates hosting a delegation of key government officials from Albania for an IVLP On Demand program focused on promoting transparency and accountability in government institutions. Participants will examine U.S. approaches to preventing corruption, exploring internal government systems, monitoring mechanisms for ethical guidelines, digital solutions for transparency, and whistleblower protections. This exchange aims to build capacity in preventative measures, complementing current U.S. assistance efforts


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.
