It was a little quiet at the United for Hope blog in the last couple of months. Despite this, or maybe because of this, a great deal has been happening in our young and quickly growing NGO. A year’s ending is always a good time for reflection. A time to go back and ask: what has gone well and what has gone wrong. What did I achieve? What am I striving for in the upcoming year? For United for Hope, the last year has been a very exciting year. It has been a year of challenges and of hard work, with many lessons and valuable insights, both into what it means to build up such an organization but also in terms of what is possible if you really pursue something. As such, 2014 has also been a year of successes and joy and gratitude. I hardly can believe how much we have achieved in such a short period of time.
