ABC 2015 European Committee Report

ABC Austin, Tx 2015 European committee Report

 

When we set up the European committee the goal were to try and connect with as many ACA's as possible. I started out with 3 or 4 countries and 23 email adresses and it grew from there today one year later I have around 250 email addresses and 26 countries on my list. And the list keeps growing.

There is 745 million people living in Europe and of these under 8,18% are speaking English as their native language, You might say what has this to do with our fellowship. I say everything. Many countries have our program and have developed an understanding without our literature. So we are not only facing the language barrier but also that members have their own understanding of our 12 step program, a program translated from other fellowship literature but addressing the Adult Children issues. We do not know how many countries we are talking about, because they choose not to be registered on our web page.My goal is to change that by offering the members a servicestruckture that indeed is European but a part of the WSO.
