Here’s a portion of my latest contribution over there to the Leader’s Corner channel.

It was exciting to be in the Feed The Children offices in Oklahoma City last month. The world came to Oklahoma as we hosted all of our international regional and country directors for our annual Global Conference.

We kicked off the week with an historic event: the international leadership of Feed The Children and World Neighbors, our newest partner, sat in the room together and planned collaborative work to help build self-sufficient communities around the globe. It was the first time since World Neighbors became a Feed The Children subsidiary that our respective teams joined together in such a dialogue.
