Thierry Kambere KatsongoThierry is jurist by training (Bac +5) at the Université Libre des Pays des Grands Lacs. Committed nationally and internationally for the past twenty years to human rights, universal values, good governance, justice and the peaceful coexistence of differences.

VNG International teams often work in complex contexts in which challenges are experienced as traps for entire communities and as an already-pronounced sentence : wretched living in perpetuity. The challenges experienced are then proof of a confirmed death of good governance.

Under these conditions, VNG International's commitment and work for good governance with communities and authorities at various levels brings technique, reason, conviction and faith to bear on the same ground. The resilience of the communities and the successes recorded are testimony to the victory over pessimism.
