IOUF Opens New Office in Granada, Spain


The President and Board of Governors with mixed emotions have said goodbye to Bosk House in Opiende, NL as it was recently sold. It had accommodated many conferences,  held meetings of some of the major leaders in social change, and was home base for many learners.  It was not only the birthplace of this Foundation but also its "think tank" and the entire IOUF family came to love the beauty and grace of this tranquil headquarters in the Dutch countryside.

Prof. dr. Hakemulder with students

In whatever you do, you should be careful about the ending and the beginning. What is done well inevitably turns out well, and what starts well finishes well. If you are as careful of the end as of the beginning, then there will be no failure.
