PUM has Country coordinators for the two or three contries and they have more than one country representative souch as I am for Serbia. My ex country coordinator is now in charge for Zambia and I think Zimbabwe. His name is Gert Bartelink ( email@example.com and he might be resource for that kind of assistance. Besides him there are many other and the best possible way is to go to www.pum.nl and search for the country of your potentional interest. Myselves I have a friend in Uganda working as a coordinator for some sectors in NGO Enterprise-Uganda Mrs Mary Ondongo (firstname.lastname@example.org) and she will definitely assist you for the Uganda. For other countries if you do not find directly rep I will check with nu Hag secretary and I will find it for you. Best regards.
Hi David, it woudl be great to chat to you about the Partnership and get you involved in the festival. We are keen that the festival provides a platform for positive development projects taking place. This year we are creating a development village where charities and NGOs will be exhibiting. Do drop me a mail on email@example.com or call on 07791 504 193. We are in our seventh year as a festival but just our first as a business so really keen to chat to others working in the field.
It would be interesting to know what projects you are currently engaged in to raise funds . Im all the way in South Africa where poverty is an important concern in our society, so it would be nice to know what exaclty you are doing on the otherside.

I am now back in the office, I was away on sick leave.
I will excited to learn from you, I love my work and I will be very grateful for any help intended. We are into health, Water and Sanition, Education Microfinancing, leadership training and advocacy.
The answer is ABSOLUTELY YES! I make every effort in my teaching to connect them with the realities of people in need (beginning with our own communities). My focus is Migrations, so you can be in wealthy Germany and choose what experiences you facilitate. I have visited Turkish communities and worked with NGO's that work with recent immigrants, for example. I could tell you a lot more about Morocco, where poverty is rampant.
I believe creating awareness and working on projects that seek to relieve poverty (beginning with education!) empowers young people to commit to making a difference (most of the times). You can saw seeds. It will be up to them to choose how to live their lives.
sorry I did not ready your info before I responded. I am a member of a human dignity and humiliation studies network. We have been talking about developing a clothing line to support "developing" nations. I am very interested in your work and experience.
I do support Caritas Europa Zero Poverty Initiative, among other projects, but they dont have a local branch in Scotland.
I am also a trustee of the Charity We Can! (Scotland) and member of the Steering Group for the Edinburgh World Justice Festival. It was through We Can! that I heard about this site, a our organisation is attended the Glasgow Conference this sunday.
I joined the group in October 2008, in the Annual General Meeting so I don t know what happened before. It seems that you are not in our distribution list.
I would like to invite you to take part in this year edition which will be in October. The call for event proposals is now closed but you can join our planning group meetings. More information is in our website.
