Today we’re publishing our annual report 2021 with the theme ‘Moving forward with the wind in the sails’. 2021 was a year with sometimes wild storms on the world sea. We saw violence, natural disasters and an ongoing pandemic. But even though the wind was sometimes against us, the work continued. And so did you: you continued to partner and work along with us. But above all: the young people, farmers, teachers and entrepreneurs in our programs were continually working on a better future for themselves and their families.
11859 farmers started working with other sowing techniques after the training they followed. 30,218 teachers stood fully inspired in front of their classes after the quality trajectory in which they participated. 21,787 enterprising young people were retrained for a new job.
We look back at 2021 with considerable gratitude and are humbled by the strength of the local partners in the countries where we work. We are very grateful for our incredibly loyal supporter base, who surprised us with their willingness to continue to give. And we realize more than ever that there is only One who commands the wind! It is with this awareness that we place our work in the hands of God who continues to protect our turbulent world.
