The Challenges in Belgium


Julio de la Granja
National delegate for Belgium

“Our 3 communities were all created more than 60 years ago and their current leaders have been involved in the movement for many years. Our three communities are, therefore, coming to a crossroads and we must find people to lead our associations for the years to come. This is already beginning to take shape as certain roles within our groups are becoming more professional (the role of driver and admin roles, for example) and thanks to partnerships with other associations. Generally speaking it is important that we pass on values such as giving, sharing and fraternity to young people.”
