In the frame of 10th Anniversary of SlovakAid, the Slovak Minister of Foreign and European Affairs Miroslav Lajčák awarded former TRIALOG Partner and Advisory Group member Mr MARIÁN ČAUČÍK for cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic in the area of official development assistance.
Marián Čaučík is a co-founder and former chairman of Slovak Platform of non-governmental development organizations MVRO, a key partner of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic. Since 1991 he has been the chairman of non-governmental organization eRko – Christian Children Communities Movement. In 2007 he became the director of the development assistance program of eRko called “Dobrá novina”. For many years it has been the most successful fundraising initiative in providing Slovak development assistance.
Mr Čaučík expressed his sincere thanks to all colleagues in the TRIALOG project who have been a great motivation and source of inspiration in the Platform building and networking activities that have resulted in the creation of the Slovak NGDO Platform and its contributions to the ODA system. As an outlook in the future he stated: “It is my wish that we can continue the dialogue with the main ODA stakeholders and contribute to similar development in other countries too.”
TRIALOG sincerely congratulates Mr Čaučík on the Development Assistance Award!
For his contribution to the creation of the SlovakAid system and trilateral cooperation between Slovakia and Canada, Mr. DAVID CHAPLIN, a Canadian International Development Agency expert and director of development program for Central European countries, received the second award.
