In November 2016, the URI Southeast Asia and the Pacific (SEAPac) regional leadership team gathered in Siem Reap, Cambodia to exchange ideas and best practices and improve URI’s work in their home countries. This photo is especially notable because it includes Despina Namwembe (standing, middle), URI-Africa’s Great Lakes Regional Coordinator. She was present at the Cambodia meeting because she was participating in a URI exchange program with Sothearat Seoung, the Regional Coordinator for URI-Southeast Asia and the Pacific - West Zone.
Through gatherings and exchanges like these, the worldwide URI community enjoys a vibrancy and closeness that allows its members to build bridges of understanding between people of diverse backgrounds more easily.
