    The cooperative was founded in 2007 and is recognized as a non-profit organization. We have a democratic and transparent structure and each member is entitled to one vote. Our members, employees and trainers are involved in decision-making processes and working groups. We have a Supervisory Board that currently consists of the following people:

    Andreas Wenzel (Chairman of the Supervisory Board), Miriam Krämer, Michael Schirmer (aufsichtsrat@act4transformation.net)

    Our Management Board: Alena Kemm and Jürgen Menzel (vorstand@act4transformation.net)

    We are an international cooperative with members from various countries: Georgia, Ukraine, Sudan, South Sudan, Uganda. Together with our Georgian members, we founded the non-profit organization "act for transformation - caucasus office" in 2017, which is registered under Georgian law as a non-profit organization in Tbilisi. We are committed to the transparency initiative and are a member of the German-European Cooperative and Auditing Association in Dessau.
