Delegation from Tajikistan to study NGOs in Albuquerque.

A delegation of Tajik leaders is coming to Albuquerque to study NGO development in the city.

The delegation is coming to Albuquerque as part of the Open World Program, a nonpartisan initiative of the U.S. Congress designed to build mutual understanding between the United States and Eurasia. Over 19,000 delegates have come to the US via the Open World Program since it started in 1999.

Delegates will meet with Center for Nonprofit Excellence, Start-Up ABQ, WESST, the Keshet Center for the Arts and the Hispano Chamber of Commerce and attend a roundtable discussion with UNM students. They will also do homestays with Albuquerque residents.

Rikki Quintana, co-founder of Bridges to Tajikistan, said in a press release, "We anticipate that the visit will develop into long-term beneficial relationships for the visitors and professional resources in New Mexico, who so willingly share their knowledge and experiences."
