50 years – 50 voices

“The relationship between the Association for Development Cooperation (AGEH) and Kolping started with the founding assembly of the AGEH on 25 November, 1959. The first development workers, mainly men, were Kolping brothers. Craftsmanship, technology, vocational training. Pragmatic and hands-on. Later, experts of the AGEH supported national Kolping Associations all over the world. Cooperation based on partnership became practice. Work camps for young people were added to enthuse them for international social issues. We are looking forward to new co-operations and wish God’s blessing for the next 50 years.”

Dr. Claudia Luecking-Michel, Managing Director of AGEH
