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.
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 2020 Collaborate event at Summit has been moved to virtual sessions. See below for details.
NEW! We're gathering ALL together, virtually. Offering sessions through Summer 2020, we are truly "Better Together" and have these opportunities to gather virtually as one. Join as we learn, discuss, encourage and share how to better serve vulnerable children and families through local engagement.
