Europe ought to be a friend, not a fortress. Ruth Nießen has a view of Europe rather from the perspective of the South. Before she started to study social work as well as Nonprofit-management and public governance, she spent one year in Burundi – where she worked for a charity taking care of street children, where she taught German and distributed micro-credit grants to women. The question of how to really help effectively in Africa led Ruth back to Europe and ultimately to EAB. As senior project manager she organises international meetings and various major projects.
