May 25, 2016: World Bank Address
The Vicente Ferrer Foundation has been invited to speak on a panel about our innovative approach to ending stigma for people with disabilities in rural India. We are deeply honored to have this special occasion to showcase our successes and identify partnerships for the future of VFF.
Urbanization is occurring at an unprecedented pace. Cities generate 80 percent of global GDP and are key to job creation and the pursuit of shared prosperity. Yet, one billion city residents live in slums today and, by 2030, one billion new migrants will arrive in cities. This concentration of people and assets will exacerbate risk exposure to adverse natural events and climate change, which affects the poor and people with disabilities disproportionately. 
We are excited to partner with the World Bank to share best practices in enhancing rural development for people with disabilities.  
May 26, 2016: Happy Hour at WeWork Dupont Circle

Attendees will learn about volunteering opportunities in the U.S. and India, as well as connect with professionals from the Dupont Circle WeWork community. Free to the public.

The North American Telugu Association (NATA) has invited Moncho Ferrer to participate in the 2016 NATA Convention, which will be held at the Dallas Convention Center over the Memorial Day Weekend. NATA is a leading non-profit organization serving the Telugu community of Indian origin living in the United States and Canada.
