In October 2020, the Swiss Board of Directors was able to participate via Zoom in the local meetings of scholars and alumni in Perú, Colombia, El Salvador and Guatemala. Due to the pandemic, the respective local committees organized the semester meeting as an online event. This enabled the participation of representatives from Switzerland as well as from our partner schools and universities.
The events set an important mark of cohesion and solidarity within the Foundation in these challenging times.
