Re: Happy 2 year birthday SuSanA Forum!!!!!

I would like to wish the SuSanA forum a very Happy Birthday!! I still can’t believe that it has been 2 years! All the discussions in the forum have been very helpful particularly for us working in developing countries and the forum has truly become a powerful platform in the sanitation sector.
I am very proud of the forum and thank everyone who has dedicated their time to make it a success.

Best regards and greetings from Kenya,

Doreen

Re: 3rd Anniversary of SuSanA discussion forum!

Dear SuSanA Forum,

Also a happy birthday from me for your third birthday!



You have come a long way since your second birthday ( forum.susana.org/forum/categories/10-by-...ay-susana-forum#4987 ), continously growing and changing.

As every proud parent, I am monitoring your growth carefully, and it is impressive (even just in the last year you have grown by 1200 members!):



Of course you have your ups and downs ("terrible twos"?) but we know that you are always able to bounce back:



You have many supporters and an excellent godfather who has invested money in providing an environment to foster your growth (German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) who is providing funds to Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH 's sanitation program to operate the SuSanA secretariat since early 2007).

Also since end of 2012 another friendly godfather has come to the party and given financial support as well as additional friends who have supported your growth ( forum.susana.org/forum/categories/139-in...ates-foundation#2599 ), and who will - with a bit of luck - continue to do so (your birthday present is in the making but not yet quite ready for announcement!).

Edit on 14 July 2014: this is the birthday present that I was referring to: further co-funding from the Gates Foundation:
sanitationupdates.wordpress.com/2014/07/...na-discussion-forum/


It's been an honour and great pleasure for me - as one of the "parents", as well as now one of the moderators and community managers - to be with you and I look forward to exciting and stimulating times ahead with you, the SuSanA Discussion Forum and all its members, supporters and friends! Thank you.

Regards,
Elisabeth

Re: 3rd Anniversary of SuSanA discussion forum!

Belated Happy Anniversary and Congratulation to all team members who made their effort for raising the profile of SuSanA Discussion Forum.

Very impressive graph and look forward to seeing similar growth in next anniversary. We need to bring more friends who really do the work in the field to disseminate the right information.

Cheers,

Roshan
