We are glad to be associated with The Wilde Ganzen Foundation to take our mission to the next level. We are hopeful that by leveraging technology, Small scale NGO’s now can operate in a more structured and effective manner.”
“International funding available for CBOs and NGOs in middle income countries is decreasing day by day. Meanwhile, pressure on civil society is increasing worldwide, and its space to operate as an independent development actor is diminishing in many places. That was the very motivation to start Change The Game Academy.” – Mr. Robert Wiggers, Deputy Director, The Wilde Ganzen Foundation. Source :
