After an inspiring speech of Menno Salverda, Fons van der Velden (both Context, international cooperation), Meindert Witvliet (director Stichting Het Groene Woudt) and Peter Mbiyu ( (International Child Support Africa), the guide was presented by Fons van der Velden and accepted by Meindert Witvliet and Marleen Hasselerharm (programme director International Child Support). Among others, SHGW and ICS both played an important role in the realisation of the SROI practical guide.
