“As former National Secretary of Kolping Austria, I have seen and appreciated our projects in Brazil and Kenya. Kolping Austria has collected a lot of money for these projects. It is true: Do not give a hungry person a fish but a fishing rod and teach him to use it, but then give him access to the pond! Kolping members in the advantaged regions: Help people in disadvantaged regions to deal with what they find in a productive and solidary way. Give them what they need, and continue to care for them. What does the Little Prince say? You become responsible for what you have become familiar with. KOLPING INTERNATIONAL is the door through which your ideas, your help will be used sustainably and with great responsibility and professionalism in the sense described above.”

Clemens Schepers, former National Secretary of KOLPING Austria
