NEWSLETTER 15 - 30 January 2012

Dear Members and Friends:

We wish you Happy New Lunar Year of the Dragon which will start on 23 January 2012. We would like to inform you that the VUFO-NGO Resource Centre will be closed during Tet holidays from Monday 23 January until Friday 27 January. We will reopen on Monday 30 January 2012.

Please note that during the week 16 - 20 January 2012 our office will have limited working hours due to reduced number of staff and several events scheduled outside the office. Our members and partners should call and make prior appointments before visiting.

There are four Working Groups meetings scheduled for February 2012:  the Climate Change Working Group on 2 February at 14:00; the Ethnic Minorities Working Group on 7 February at 09:00; the Child Rights Working Group on 10 February at 14:00; the Disaster Management Working Group on 17 February at 14:00. All meetings will take place at the VUFO-NGO Resource Centre. Please check the 'Calendar of Events' section on our home page for the latest updates and possible changes.

Warm greetings from the VUFO-NGO Resource Centre's Team!
