Global Health and Faith based Communities - 2013


Its amazing the kind of people you reach with your passion to help end poverty through solidarity.

Just like the current global faith and health summit we are attending in Annecy. This is a high powered group with leaders from World Bank, IMF. WHO and funding institutions in Geneva and some select NGOs and foundations. Jean Francois is a fantastic host.

Jerick gave an inspiring presentation this afternoon about addressing climate change, food security and public health by building GK intentional communities.

God bless.

All the best for the future of the network you have created.

Dear Jean Francois:

I safely arrived back to NYC last Friday after having a wonderful experience at your conference in Annecy.

It was a real honor being a speaker at the conference. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share what I have done and what I have learned working with Grameen. I am glad that the discussion during the panel was interesting and full of great ideas to improve our work for development. 

Please keep me posted about following up the discussion we started in Annecy during the conference.
