New Foundation Will Share And Celebrate Malta With North American Audiences


 
PRLog - Jul. 29, 2014 - BOSTON -- To inspire Americans to learn about, experience and support places of great historic, cultural, and natural significance in Malta, the American Malta Foundation was created, in alliance with Din l-Art Ħelwa, the National Trust of Malta. After two years of planning, and studying the feasibility of a new organization, the American Malta Foundation (AMF) was formally launched in 2014, and is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. AMF memberships are available, and begin at $25.

Din l-Art Ħelwa is a non-governmental, nonprofit, voluntary organization founded in 1965 to safeguard the historic, artistic and natural heritage of Malta. Since its beginning, Din l-Art Ħelwa has restored and managed numerous cultural sites of immense historic and environmental importance. As an independent American nonprofit corporation, the American Malta Foundation will help promote Din l-Art Ħelwa priorities in the United States and Canada.

According to Stefanie Joy Muscat, President of the AMF Board of Directors, “In late 2012, the first conversations about the Foundation began, between myself and Luciano Mulè Stagno of Din l-Art Ħelwa. As the wife of a 2nd generation Maltese descendent, and the mother of a 3rd generation, I was actively seeking ways in which my family could have meaningful engagement with its Maltese roots. I was aware of organizations, in North America, actively fundraising and promoting the interests of NGOs in Europe and Asia. Why couldn't such an organization exist to represent Malta?”

There are many activities currently being undertaken, and planned, by the American Malta Foundation. Among them is the North American Maltese Oral History Project (NAMOP), which represents one of the first attempts in the US and Canada to record Maltese immigrant experiences in their own words.

The Foundation is also offering group travel to Malta. Two trips are being planning for 2015, with departures in April and October. Tours created by the American Malta Foundation allow for an intimate and exclusive view of Malta's unique culture, heritage and natural beauty.

General information about the American Malta Foundation is available at http://www.americanmaltafoundation.org.
