Hello,
Please if someone can help understand the word outreach here in the sentence. It really confuses me, since it is used as a noun.
Here is the entire sentence:
"First African Union Western Hemisphere Diaspora Forum —an outreach by the AU to the growing population of Africans in the Diaspora in its efforts to link migration with development in Africa."
Thank you.

    Which dictionary? It's in the WR Dictionary:

    n. [uncountable]
    1. an act or instance of reaching out.
    2. the act of extending community services to a wider section of the population:programs of community outreach to the poor.
    My bad!! Thank you very much. Iswear i have red the definition in the Merriam Webster dictionary but did not see that part. I took a look in bilingual dictionaries also. Now when reading Webster again :eek:.
    Tnahk you very much again.
