50 years – 50 voices

“At Kolping International development cooperation is carried out by people who care about others. They see where there is a shortage and where distress needs to be relieved. 50 years of engagement for the poorest of the poor means to build up sustainable institutions and structures, to raise funds, to organize encounters, to exercise restraint, and to give a voice to those who are not heard in many of their home countries. However, it also means to come to agreements with those in power, time and again, and to struggle for democratic developments.  Justice, peace and the preservation of creation are guidelines on the way to the One World. Thanks to everyone at Kolping who commit themselves reliably to achieve this.”

Karin Kortmann, Vice-President of the Central Committee of the German Catholics (ZDK)
