Barth is the leader of iTeams NL, and is assisted in his role by a team of specialists. Since the early 80s he and his wife Mathilde have been involved in mission. This has been mainly with their first love – the Balkans and especially Albania.


Barth’s main role is director of the Stichting International Teams. Together with the board he determines the course of the organisation, and the support given to the volunteers connected to the organisation. He happens to also be one of these volunteers. As a leader of a small team, his task is multifaceted, and involves both dealing with people and accountancy; sitting behind a desk and visiting the field. However, for him the best thing about his work is enabling others to go out themselves, and seeing the multiplication of his own work. 

Global Alliance

Besides working for iTeams NL, Barth represents them inside the umbrella organisation in the Netherlands and on the field. He participates in numerous working groups and boards of partner organisations in the Netherlands and further afield. Finally, as the director of iTeams-NL he is part of the iTeams Global Alliance, the round table where the directors of the various iTeams national organisations from across the world meet every year.
