Our office space

Our office over the coffeebar!

We rent a small office in Rickmansworth, which is part of greater London. The office occupies two floors over a shop.

Our total floor space is 45.5 sq. meters ( = 491 sq. ft). It contains the following rooms:

  • one small room with1 desk;
  • two medium-sized office rooms with space for 3 desks each;
  • a parlour-cum-meeting room with a kitchenette in the corner;
  • a toilet.

Our facilities are basic, but they allow up to seven of us to work there at the same time. It is the nerve centre of our administration and international network.

We need your financial help for this project to survive!

Dear visitor, you are welcome to use our material. However: building up and maintaining this site costs money. We are a Charity and work mainly with volunteers, but find it difficult to pay our overheads. Please, become a Friend or support us with a donation. Also, as some of you recommended to us, we are exploring how to generate income by advertising. Please, support us in this effort and send us your suggestions.
