Look-back to an eventful year
On 10 June CSI Lëtzebuerg sent out its invitation to this year’s Annual General Meeting, and was able to look back at the eventful year that was 2014.
For CSI Lëtzebuerg the year 2014 was marked by its 25th anniversary, which was celebrated by two events: a gala dinner in May and an academic symposium in November. President Bob Kirsch announced that, since its foundation, CSI had funded projects to the tune of 7 million euros in total. Project coordinator Véronique Weis then presented a number of projects which were particularly active in 2014. These include two projects in India which CSI took over from the NGO “Les Amis de l’Inde” under the terms of a partnership agreement.
On the subject of global education, Fabienne Michaux (responsible for this subject area) among other things referred to the success of the board game Lekoli, which was devised by CSI and has become a fixed part of the workshops held in schools. She also talked about the many activities in the field of global education organised by CSI in 2014, including a visit by teachers to Burkina Faso, the building of a replica of a Senegalese school (“A l’école de Diara“), and a treasure chest exhibition (“L’éducation, un trésor“). In the field of fundraising and communication in 2014, in connection with the anniversary, a publicity article appeared in the Luxemburger Wort newspaper, a special edition of CSI’s monthly magazine was published, and a new website was created.
Following the presentation of the 2014 financial report by treasurer Ly Lan Do Le, Bob Kirsch described some of the main events of the current year. The meeting ended with a reception for all the participants.
