As an NGO, our work would not be possible without the funding and support of our international and local partners. Therefore, we thank all our donors and collaborators for their trust and cooperation. Moreover, we are grateful for the scientific advisory board and the cooperation with the father of action regulation theory, STEP and PI training, Prof. Dr. Michael Frese and his research group at the Leuphana University of Lüneburg.
