Far away but always near

It is affecting us all. Around the globe. COVID19. To prevent further escalation we need to distance ourselves from other people. However, we know that it is human interaction that makes our lives sparkle. And especially in strange times like these, we need that spark.

To all our partners all over the world we want to say that we are still here for you. Eventhough we cannot visit you, see you, sit with you. We assure you we are here. Whether you are in community isolation in Mindanao, held to a nationwide quarantine in Bolivia or still taking to the streets waiting for the COVID hit in Cameroon. From our home offices we continue to work with you and we try to be as flexible as possible to find solutions together with you.

Do not hesitate to contact us for project- or organization related matters, or just to touch base from person to person. Wishing you all the best and stay safe!
