School in Schoten (Antwerp – Belgium) in action for Romania

On Monday, February 8th, Ronny Van Dessel (President ICC Belgium and ICC for Romania) and Tommy Pootemans (Vice-President of ICC for Romania and ICC Ambassador) were invited to the Sint-Cordula Institute, a school in Schoten near Antwerp, Belgium. They were asked to present a program to the 400 students of the secondary school. The 400 students were divided into groups and over a period of 6 hours they received a presentation about our ICC projects in Congo and Romania. After the presentation each group received a sponsor card from the school and a folder of ICC Belgium so they were armed to raise some money for our project in Romania during their week off from school in February.
