Our organisational and governance structure has undergone a total makeover and we have become an international network organisation, effective as of 1 January 2017. Almost a year later, we also changed our brand name from Vredeseilanden/VECO into Rikolto.
A Belgian Public Interest Foundation, Rikolto International s.o.n. is managed by an International Board of Directors and an International Management Team composed of the directors of the different programmes in the various regions.
This Public Interest Foundation operates alongside the Non-Profit organisation Rikolto Belgium v.z.w. (previously Vredeseilanden v.z.w.), which has ultimate responsibility for all funds raised from Belgium donors.
At the end of November 2018, Rikolto International s.o.n. and Rikolto Belgium v.z.w. created Rikolto b.v.b.a., an enterprise with limited liability and social purpose, to complement our activities funded with donations.
