We choose to collaborate with colleges because it enriches our range of technical assistance. The support through development workers and the technical assistance through institutions complement each other.
We find it important that the colleges follow their objectives around internationalisation in this cooperation. We also wish that the institutions align their North and South operations and pay attention to social support in Flanders. In addition, both organisations (VVOB and the College) need to find a clear added value in the collaboration. Finally, we find it important to think in terms of a long-term partnership, making the collaboration sustainable.
