As we prepare to celebrate our 30th Anniversary, we wish to give thanks to all of the individuals, foundations, public organizations, international and bilateral agencies and corporate donors whose support has kept us going over this time. The multiplicity of donors attests to the fact that we have no single patron and we need to constantly mobilize funding from many sources to continue our work as an independent actor.
