      Heartland International, a Chicago based NGO is looking for individuals
      willing to host a Moroccan host in their home from April 28 through May 15. The
      Moroccan participants are all non governmental organization (NGO) leaders and are
      taking part in Heartland International’s Democratic Leadership Training
      Program. The objectives of this program are to strengthen the advocacy skills of
      the participants and their NGOs; to develop sustained international,
      institutional and individual linkages; and enhance the mutual understanding between
      participants and their American counterparts on one another's political, social
      and economic structures. Participants in the program attend workshops downtown
      during the day and will take care of their transportation needs. Hosts are
      just expected to provide them with a place to sleep and food so that they can
      have breakfast and dinner with or without the host depending on schedule and
      circumstances. In other terms, the host is not supposed to cook especially for
      their guests, just offer them a share of what is normally available in the
      house.
      This is a good opportunity to get to know interesting people and learn more
      about what's happening in Marocco these days, especially if you know some
      French and are looking forward to refresh your language skills. It happens that
      several people in Oak Park and River Forest have already offered to host
      participants. So if a few more hospitable people can be found, participants will be
      able to travel to and from downtown together and enjoy some of their free time
      in our area even more. This group is made up of both males and females
      ranging in age from 23 to 46 all of whom are fluent in French & Arabic with varying
      English capabilities.
      For more information on this or on becoming a home stay host at another date,
      please contact Erika Reff Vogel at (312) 583-9430 or
