Our History

Founded in
August 1969 in Rotterdam
- 100 delegates from 52 organizations representing 400 centres and 66 countries took part - both Catholic and Protestant
to foster collaboration and mutual aid amongst constituent bodies and to further common interests, and to serve as a means of more effective communication with other agencies
to be the collective and respected voice of the association within the industry and outside it.
Debates: MImplications of "Christian" and meaning of "Proselytism"
