Aidmatrix COO in Central and Western Europe Expanding Aidmatrix Programs

This week I am in Central and Western Europe working on the expansion of our programs in the region. In particular, our partners in Slovakia and Eastern Czech Republic are helping Aidmatrix expand one of our newer initiatives – leveraging the capacity of leading edge corporations and partner NGOs to change lives by providing business and technology education to those who need it. This will enable them to radically change their working opportunities, their lives and the lives of their families.

Aidmatrix is a strong believer in partnerships. We work with each member of the community, focusing on the core strengths of each organization.  With this in mind, in Slovakia we have an excellent partner in the Pontis Foundation (Nadcia Pontis).  Pontis, like Aidmatrix, has strong connections and the ability to relate with the Private Sector and Government, as well as provide quality program implementations. They are a strong believer in partnerships as well. When it comes to local technical training delivery, bringing another partner to the table will help our team become even stronger in all aspects of the program.

Monday, I had the opportunity to meet some of the leadership at Aptech Europe.  Headquartered in Bratislava, Slovakia, this NGO is passionate about delivering quality training and transforming lives with their efforts.  Our meeting this week was to start determining if Aptech Europe may be a strong addition to our team in this important initiative.  It was clear that Aptech could help Aidmatrix with quality local delivery – and help us improve our efforts in this area globally. I think they already see also how Aptech Europe, powered by Aidmatrix and Pontis, could dramatically expand their impact in the region as well as contribute to something even bigger.

Stay tuned for further updates on this exciting potential partnership!
