First USAID workshop organized for a broad Indian American community

On June 3, 2010, USAID, in partnership with Hindu American Seva Charities, hosted a historic, first of its kind, workshop for the diverse Indian-American community. It was an implementation of recommendations present to President Obama on March 9th, by the Advisory Council on Faith Based and Neighborhood partnerships. The enhanced focus on Diaspora engagement also coincided with the U.S.- India Strategic dialogues. Participants included secular and Dharmic organizations of many faiths including dalits.
