Management of CT with special gratitude acknowledges the capacity building support received from FCL during the period. Multiple projects of CT were funded by FCL. Sharing office and staff, organizing common events and supporting each other were ways to promoting Caritas partnership principles and solidarity in place and increasing efficiency of programming. We would like to give a special thanks in this cooperation to Dr. Godehard, FCL representative who has particular role in this cooperation.
