2015 is named the "European Year for Development".
Christmas is the season we wish to spend with our loved ones but also the time to pause for a moment, look back at what we've accomplished and review our priorities. Development Aid has been a priority of the European Union for years now, and it has named 2015 as the European Year for Development. Development means growth but it also means helping and supporting the weaker and poorer. The main goal of the European Year for Development is to show how Development Aid is helping people living in both some of the world's poorest countries and EU citizens themselves.

Our warmest wishes to you and your families for a Merry Christmas and a creative, healthy and happy 2015!
