Zangbeto: Voodoo Savior of Benin's Mangroves
In a wooden canoe on the waters of the Mono River in southwest Benin, a strange cone-shaped effigy in purple raffia and topped with horns sails back and forth through the mangroves. The Zangbeto — the traditional voodoo guardian of the night — once policed the streets to maintain law and order and scare away its enemies.

The Welcoming Center

Picture above, Anne O'Callaghan talking to an audience about the ethnic and industry breakdown of small businesses near the Welcoming Center.

The conference was a community outreach from Philadelphia's public radio station WHYY, and was held May 18, 2009, and other pictures on this page, including the pie charts, are from that conference.

Mrs O'Callaghan is Irish, she sounds like my late mother and I love to listen to her. You can too, o this page!

In April 2012 Mrs O'Callaghan retired from her position as CEO of the Welcoming Center.

I don't know what she is doing now, but I am sure she is raging against the oncoming night by doing the maximum amount of good for the maximum amount of humans. God bless Mrs O'Callaghan and whatever she does!

From the Welcoming Center:

"In fall 2001, PAIRC conducted a comprehensive study to assess the landscape of the Philadelphia area’s immigrant service providers. This study found that the services offered to immigrants were extensive and filled a significant need. At the same time, however, these services were fragmented and hard to access. In fact, in an informal survey of these organizations, all discussed the need for a centralized information source.

Anne O’Callaghan, herself an Irish immigrant who has been in the Philadelphia area for 3 decades, observed that the situation had not changed much since her arrival. Change was the challenge.


In response, she founded the Welcoming Center to serve as a centralized resource and employment center for immigrants in Philadelphia. The Welcoming Center opened in 2003, and Anne served as its president and CEO for the next 9 years.


Since opening, the Welcoming Center has worked tirelessly to help new Americans in this region, both through direct services and by raising awareness among the business and political communities about the positive impact that immigrants have on our economy. One of the Welcoming Center’s key roles has been to help create strategic relationships across a broad-based coalition of ethnic community-based organizations, immigrant service providers, and corporate, government, union, and foundation leaders in the greater Philadelphia region; and the promotion of immigrants and immigration as assets to regional economic development.
