 ADF Western Hemisphere

 

The Western Hemisphere division of ADF will begin its 2009 tasks by contacting organizations within the Western Hemisphere. Thus, we will contact like organizations and persons to build an ADF cadre based on their ability to advance the goals, objectives and vision of ADF within a global context.

 

Considering this focus, we will begin in the Caribbean and South America via four approaches:

1. Contact particular organizations such as the ones listed below (to translate some of the content, see: http://babelfish.yahoo.com/);

2. Send a call for participation to organizations within our region through all forums of media;

3. Set a target date for implementation and overall evaluation of our plan, recognizing that every region will not be represented;

4. Encourage our organizational and individual partners to participate in the activities of the ADF TV-Radio Network.
