WorldOregon NGO Showcase
October 12, 2021 6pm - Online Event
We’re excited to invite you to be a part of WorldOregon’s online 9th Annual NGO Showcase! This event, hosted by the Young Professionals of WorldOregon, highlights Portland metro-based international development nonprofits.
This year, due to the coronavirus pandemic, WorldOregon’s NGO showcase will be held virtually. This year we are giving six local/regional NGOs the opportunity to share the story of their impactful work with a 5-minute Ignite-style presentation.
Welcoming New GlobalPDX Member - SPOON Foundation
Nutrition powers children to grow, develop, and reach their potential. Children with disabilities and children without family care are particularly vulnerable to malnutrition. Good nutrition for ALL children makes families and communities stronger.
SPOON empowers caregivers, creates tools, and strengthens systems to bring critical nutrition and feeding practices to children without family care, and children with disabilities.
Join a community that cares:
In 1996 Irene Tinker began "Dev Drinks", an informal global development group in her home. It was in these meetings, over micro brews and shared philosophy, that GlobalPDX was born. In 2012 Green Empowerment helped transform these informal gatherings into strategic networking events for the global development community. In 2017 Portland State University took GlobalPDX to the next level by developing a framework for GlobalPDX to support local academic pursuits and organizations around Oregon. Ever since GlobalPDX has focused on elevating the impact of globally conscious organizations and amplifying the voices of the passionate individuals of Portland.
A big thanks to our founding Steering Committee Member Organizations who continue to guide the development of GlobalPDX.
