Collaborate is a forum for CAFO Global Network leaders. Designed as an immersive experience for global Christian leaders who are either leading national orphan care movements in their countries or desire to begin one. Collaborate brings together national leaders from around the world to share expertise, make new connections, learn best practices and add your voice to CAFO Global Network projects and objectives that are key to vibrant, locally-led orphan care networks.

EXPERIENCE COLLABORATE

ANNUAL SUMMIT

Collaborate is known for its facilitated discussions around set topics. We identify speakers to present on the topic, using various forms (lecture/presentation, panel discussions, or live interviews on stage). After that, attendees are seated in small groups of 8-15 people based on various factors (by Leadership Role, by World Region, or by Network). Throughout the live event, global leaders continue to informally discuss the topics in the halls or during mealtimes.

Please note that due to the impact of COVID-19 on global travel, the 2021 Collaborate event at Summit will be a hybrid of in-person, Virtual Collaborate and locally hosted Collaborate+ events - all connected via online sessions. See below for details.

VIRTUAL SESSIONS

We're ALL gathering together virtually each quarter through Virtual Collaborate. Offering quarterly LEARN, DISCUSS and FIRESIDE CHAT sessions throughout 2021, we are truly "Better Together!"
