The president of Good Soil Partners, Steve Chartier and his family, attended the event at Connecticut College in New London CT. The NEMA events consisted of a soccer game and an evening presentation and dinner with an authentic Malawian meal. Steve Chartier spoke on “Owning Our Citizenship,” and he was presented with a Goodwill Ambassador Award by the association. The Goodwill Ambassador Award was given to Good Soil Partners for promoting quality youth growth, development, and empowerment in Malawi and to Malawians in diaspora.
