Delegation to Brazil/Paraguay September 16 to 30, 2012

The Chapter has set the new dates for the Brazil/ Paraguay Delegation as September 16 to 30, 2012.

First the delegation will go to the city of Sao Paolo for some important meetings in that vibrant urban setting.  We have wonderful contacts with  Human Trafficking organizations.  And Kathleen Huston will take the lead in estabilishing contacts relative to ecology and green economy initiatives.  

On the 22nd the delegation will go to Asuncion, Paraguay for 5 days of meeting hosted by Cynthia Bendlin, International Women of Courage awardee 2008.  

On the 27th the delegation will return to Brazil ending with a 2 night stay at a Coffee Plantation 180 miles outside Sao Paulo.  Here we will meet with local women from this rural setting and learn about the coffee business in Brazil.  

Robin Winter Odem will work with the coffee plantation and a Brazilian Author for our program during our 2 days at the Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza coffee plantation http://www.fafbrazil.com/fafbr/ip.asp?op=News&lg=E&sc=A
