PRESENTATION Annual Report 2013

Dear Funders and Friends, March 2014   The life of Nelson Mandela was remembered with gratitude and celebrated with joy as we came to the end of our working year.

We invited Dr. Terry Sacco, a highly experienced social worker, lecturer and researcher to run a training program at our project. We selected the project manager and a coordinator...
