President words
In 2018 we shall celebrate the 20th birthday of the CRIJ. During these 20 years the CRIJ has continouesly worked to :
  • increase support to associations and local public institutions, especially the city schools, carrying out projects including international characteristics to a large extend, and
  • continue the existing successful language lessons in german, english and spanish for Cachan citizens.
Beside this goal, the CRIJ carries out many actions within the frame of the twinning with the district of Wolfenbüttel in Germany.
Our exchanges  within the twinning are still very dynamic and schools exchanges, sport and culture meetings are planned for 2018 and involve each year several hundred visitors to and from Wolfenbüttel.

The CRIJ will be glad to welcome all visitors at the annual Cachan Associations Meeting organized by the city authorities on september 15th.
During the City Festival of International Solidarity in november, the CRIJ will again organize within this frame its yearly meeting, offering to Cachan associations the opportunity to promote their Solidarity actions and projects, and to share their experience within this area. In 2017, 7 associations took part to this meeting.
During the City Festival of Internatioal Solidarity, the CRIJ also visited 14 schools classes to give chidren an initiation to this subject, based on actual projects carried out in Burundi.

The dynamism, availability and efficiency of the CRIJ board members are continoues. Please let me thank them officially here.
