AMPO in Berlin and members' meeting in Hamburg!
At this year's general meeting, we realised just how important direct dialogue is. Lively discussions, the presentation of new projects, a report on the situation in Burkina Faso by Katrin Rohde and the board elections made the afternoon interesting and exciting.
Unfortunately, we were unable to welcome our guests from Burkina Faso, Dénis Yameogo (Director General) and Olivier Bado (Director of Tondtenga) in Hamburg, but they did come to Berlin.
And here, too, the talks were important, because we know far too little about the current situation in the country. We learnt that the political situation is not affecting the AMPO projects. However, the inflation rate is rising and so are food prices. We have to try to compensate for this.
It was a wonderful and interesting few days!
