News We celebrate our 20th anniversary

In October 2022, the URBIS FOUNDATION is 20 years old. We celebrated this milestone with the founding family, colleagues and long-time supporters of the foundation at an anniversary conference. It was especially nice to have six of our Togolese colleagues from the URBIS FOUNDATION Togo with us. We had invited them to Germany for this anniversary. With them was our longest employee Fousseni Morou, who has been with us since 2002.

We used the two-day event on 24 and 25 September for exchange and discussion on various topics: Fundraising, Technology Transfer, Social Entrepreneurship and Gender. With the keynote speech "Gender in Development Cooperation" held by Lara Biel, development policy officer at Plan International, we deliberately created an impulse for all participants to question this aspect in their own work. A special highlight was our future workshop where we all collected ideas for the next 20 years of URBIS FOUNDATION.
