The team of CASA HOGAR consists of a group of committed and enthusiastic young people who distribute the work amongst themselves. Each team member contributes their skills and everyone is willing to help where ever work is needed: In Colombia, it’s all about construction, operation and recruitment of personnel whereas in Germany it is mostly about fundraising, controlling, etc. Decision are made, setbacks are talked over and next steps and adjustments decided in constant exchange between the teams.
Through regular internal e-mails, telephone calls and Skype conferences, all team members keep one other up to date regardless of their respective locations throughout Germany. This way, new ideas can be introduced to the process quickly and important decisions can be made and communicated easily. Regular team meetings in spring and autumn, where everyone finally gets together in person, ensure additional inspiration and motivation.
