Guam - When the government can't provide it's usually Guam's nonprofit organizations that step forward to help the island community. Starting tomorrow Payu-Ta, Inc. will host its 2nd Nonprofit Congress. Payu-Ta is the umbrella organization for non-profits in Guam.  

Conference coordinator Sarah Thomas Nededog said, "All of us are coming together to take a look at challenges and issues that are facing nonprofits. And how we together as a group can help improve our communities and build capacity among and in our non profit sector."
 
Aside from nonprofits in Guam, also invited to attend are NGO's volunteers and chief executives from all over Micronesia, partner organization in Hawaii as well as from Washington, DC. One of the issues to be discussed include how do non profits meet the growing needs in our community successfully with current financial limitations.  About 200 key individuals from Guam and the region are expected to attend. Some of the key speakers include James O'dea a former president of Amnesty International, Robin Danner the CEO for the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement, and Dr. Carlyle Corbin the United Nation's expert advisor on self-determination.
