• "Although the virtual experience has been very different and challenging, we've been able to continue working with the organisations in Mozambique.
    We made the trip to Maputo without ever leaving our homes!"
    Roser de la Torre, CooperantesCaixa, Spain.

  • "You come back all mixed up inside, wanting to change the world by helping those who need it. You go to help and they help you. You go to teach and they teach you. You give just a little and they give you their heart. I keep getting all emotional when I think about the great time I had in Colombia. I can never forget the people that welcomed me."
    Javier Vilés, Pro Futuro, Colombia.

  • "I've understood the need to live more in touch with nature and the consequences my way of life has on the lives of people on the other side of the world. The importance of listening to and understanding the needs of the beneficiaries so that the improvements we make can make them drivers of their own change, in keeping with their way of life and sustainable over time."
    Eva Landeira, Work for Progress, Entre Culturas, Peru.

  • "Knowing how other people live helps you to grow as a person. You learn to prioritise and strike a balance between personal and professional values. You're faced with situations and experiences where it's essential to manage frustration."
    Lola Pardo, Work for Progress, Action Aid, Mozambique.

  • "If you don't act, you don't change anything. Collaboration helps people to get better living conditions but it's also mutually beneficial. You help them and they help you."
    Raúl Abando, Work for Progress, Development Alternatives, India.
