Since 2002, one Forjando Liderazgo event has been conducted in Jamaica, impacting an estimated 40 participants and their communities. DPNA Advisory Board member and Executive Director of RISE Life Management Services Sonita Abrahamson served as local coordinator for the Forjando Liderazgo/Forging Leadership seminar held in December 2007. This event faced many challenges because of storm damage suffered months prior and local elections, but it was clear that this event was welcomed as many participants expressed the need to build a coalition throughout the event and that there has been a serious breakdown in communication in social services in Jamaica. At last update, Ms. Abrahams was continuing to work with the attendees and the Health Administration to further establish collaboration.
