For a long time I’ve been working in the private charity sector and involved in development aid projects all over the world. For a variety of foundations I look after the application process , the project management including the project reports.
I have seen and experienced that it is essential for people to take their responsibility and go on with their lives. I also experience that it’s hard to reach this, not only for the local people but also for us because our standards and our pursuit of happiness is not similar to other cultures. At what moment have people to take their own responsibility? When are things enough?
Because of the spontaneous and successful emergency aid after the earthquake in Nepal I became very involved . It touched my heart and soul and connected me with the welfare of the Nepalese people. Because of this involvement I did my utmost to find funds in the emergency period. I continued this – as expected by my donators- in the reconstruction projects. And it doesn’t stop there. There is still a lot to do.
