Because today we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the partnership between TNT and WFP, the TNT Centre does not only has an orange color, but also also some blue.
For this occassion the central reception hall as well as the stairs in the attrium are decorated with balloons.
I took some pictures to share with you.
Today is an important anniversary!
This September our partnership with WFP turns 10 years old. I think it’s really a great achievement and for this special occasion we’ve created a dedicated micro-website to look back in time and thank you all who have contributed.
In 10 years time we as TNT employees did amazing things for WFP. We started with the School Feeding Programme and I remember that a lot of colleagues saw with there own eyes what a great work WFP did and how the support from TNT was needed.
Thru the years the partnership with WFP really became part of the DNA of TNT. And given all the challenges WFP and TNT solved over the past 10 years, I think we can truly say "Sure We Can"
Please share all your great stories about the partnership with your colleagues around the globe.

“If you can’t get the driver to the classroom, you have to get the classroom to the driver,” said Paul Jansen, Director of Fleet Forum. “Road traffic accidents are expected to increase dramatically by 2030 to become the third leading cause of death globally. That increase will have a particularly significant impact in low- and middle-income countries, where road traffic accidents already pose an enormous health risk. Fleet Forum has developed an award-winning Fleet Safety Management Toolkit, which has been tested and used by several aid and development organisations in Africa and India.
