The Amal Alliance—Empowering Displaced Youth

Danielle De La Fuente is the co-founder (with Dr. Rose Cardarelli) of the Amal Alliance, Inc.—​a non-governmental organization dedicated to empowering displaced youth through social development programs at refugee camps around the world. The organization is based on the premise that we are all global citizens with a social and moral responsibility to ensure that children have access to their cultural identity, knowledge of their history and future opportunities through reading stories and finding inner strength. Our holistic approach stimulates the mind and body through education and integration programs. Ms. De La Fuente earned a BA in International Relations from Boston University and an MLitt in Peace and Conflict Studies from the University of St Andrews in Scotland. She served at the National Defense University where she fostered relations across the Middle East and South Asia. She has also worked at various embassies and on political campaigns. She specializes in work as a liaison between the diplomatic, governmental and political realms.
