Another leg of the SHIFSD’s Director, Jeremiah T. Burgess, visit to The Netherlands led him to the city of Apeldoom where ZOA International head office is located. In Apeldoom, the Director had several meetings with key staff at the ZOA head office, and with the Board Chairperson of INITIAT, Margret C. Grondel and others.
INITIAT, like ZOA, is a Dutch INGO, and also a strategic partner of the Self-help Initiative for Sustainable Development (SHIFSD). In collaboration with Wilde Ganzen, INITIAT funded the construction of the SHIFSD’s Enterprise and Job Training Institute (The BRIDGE) located in the township of Johnsonville.
