Humanitarian Experts Gather for ADHOC-CC's Fourth Assembly of International Trustees

08 Feb, 2016
This month a number of well known humanitarians gathered in Lome, Togo, to support ADHOC-CC’s Fourth Assembly of International Trustees.  Participants traveled from around the globe to offer their time and expertise, in support of the pan-African NGO.  Guests included Dr. Salim Ahmed Salim – renowned for his work in peace and security and British MP, The Right Honourable Clare Short, both of whom have offered their long-term support to the organization, amongst others.
Prior to the Assembly a number of Trustees traveled to Shashemene, to visit an ADHOC-CC project and meet the communities and staff involved.  This gave members of the board an opportunity to meet first hand the people whom they work to assist, and likewise community members the chance to speak to those who govern the organization. 

The meeting in earnest took place at the Sheraton Addis, who kindly sponsored the event.  During the meeting Trustees outlined and concluded plans to propel the organisation into the future, as a strong and independent African NGO.  To do so they explored innovative ways to overcome the challenges which continue to frustrate southern based organizations, namely available funding streams and capacity development.
