International Secretariat

The SCI International Secretariat is based in Antwerp, Belgium.  Currently three staff persons are working here together with three Long Term Volunteers. At the International Secretariat we are busy with the international coordination of SCI, which includes finance and insurance, support to international working groups, PR and communication, international meetings, campaigns and projects, exchange support and volunteer management.

Who are the people at the International Secretariat?
