50 years – 50 voices

“For fifty years, KOLPING INTERNATIONAL has strengthened solidarity between people – in Kolping Families and across national borders. At a time when global civil society is increasingly under pressure it is more important than ever before to accept responsibility in and for a strong community. In many places, spaces that are indispensable for a functioning society and the wellbeing of people are shrinking. Therefore, I would like to encourage KOLPING INTERNATIONAL to continue to be a strong player in civil society and to make its voice heard politically when civil liberties are restricted worldwide.”

Heike Spielmans, managing director of VENRO
