Human and financial resources are a major challenge to facilitate the realization of the vision of an organization engaged in the collaboration to development. If the first ones are available and easily mobilized on the spot, the seconds are not. So a way should have been found to achieve that. That was how Verein Bouge was created in 2009 to help along the mobilization of the financial needful resources for the projects’ implementation in Benin.
With a board of directors of five members, which is chaired by E. Werner Külling, a man whose experience in the collaboration to development is no longer needed to be proved, Swiss Bouge plays a decisive role in mobilizing Financial resources for the implementation of practical projects to achieve the Organization’s vision in Benin.
There are five members in the Swiss Bouge’s Board of Directors: A president, a Vice-president, a secretary and two members.
