The Joke Waller-Hunter Initiative
Both ENDS proudly launched the Joke Waller-Hunter Initiative on March 9th, 2007. This initiative enables talented people who work at environmental organisations in the South to develop themselves further. The Joke Waller-Hunter Initiative makes funds from Joke Waller-Hunter's assets available for 'individual leadership development': going on study trips, conducting research, following management training courses, writing for publications, etc. The annual available amount of € 125.000 is divided into contributions of between € 2.500 and € 15.000. Both ENDS has chosen seven people as the primary beneficiaries. Four of these were present in Amsterdam on March 9th on the Both ENDS 21 year anniversary celebration and introduced themselves to the public .
