Mexican Officials to Sign International Agreement with IAC at Gala Event


Mexicos Sistema Nacional para el Desarollo Integral de la Familia (DIF) will sign agreement with the IAC to launch adoption management system pilot program in one of their 32 states

ATLANTA GA (PRWEB) September 24, 2003 -– On Saturday, September 27, 2003, representatives of the Mexicos Sistema Nacional para el Desarollo Integral de la Familia (DIF) will sign an agreement with the Intercountry Adoption Congress (IAC) to pilot an adoption information management system in one of the countrys 32 states. This historical event will take place during the IACs International Dove Ball at The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead.

National DIF General Director Ana Teresa Aranda Orozco, General Subdirector Dr. Carlos Pérez López, and Project Coordinator Arturo Cornejo Moreno Valle will travel from Mexico City to Atlanta for this prestigious event. This milestone will mark the culmination of a relationship that began a year ago between the IAC and the DIF.

Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue and First Lady Mary Perdue, who are serving as Dove Ball honorary chairpersons, former Governor George Busbee and First Lady Mary Beth Busbee, Georgia State Senator Jeff Mullis, and Georgia Congressman Mac Collins, to name a few, will be on hand to witness this landmark agreement.

The IAC, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit human rights group, was formed to give orphans a strong advocate and to overhaul adoption systems badly in need of repair. Through a partnership with a technology company, the IAC has been granted a license for an adoption information management software which the organization can offer to government entities gratis.

In a country of more than 100 million, the Mexican government struggles to efficiently manage their nations social system especially as it pertains to children. Because of unregulated private orphanages, corruption, and child trafficking, the National DIF has great difficulty in knowing the exact number of children who are orphaned, abused, and abandoned in their country. For the National DIF, technology is an important tool they desperately need in order to more effectively handle this problem.

The Dove Ball, which is sponsored in part by Georgia Power, Trans Parent Systems, Inc., AGL Resources, Publix Super Markets, and Kroger, will also feature dinner, music, and both silent and live auctions to raise funds for the IACs mission.

There are still sponsorship opportunities and tickets available for next weeks International Dove Ball. For more information, please call IAC Executive Director Lynda Lee Smith at 678-393-7205.
