My experience with the COFO team was exciting. The host provided a bedroom and meals at his house, and I enjoyed Malawian food. Every day I went to the field to capture pictures and footage to promote them. We had a busy schedule doing interviews, distributions, and computer work at the office. It was a fascinating time in Chikwawa!

Tive a oportunidade de fazer parte deste time maravilhoso assim como conhecer pessoas inteiramente envolvidas com o projeto de mudança social para a comunidade. As pessoas locais são muito comprometidas e desejam mudanças e precisam muito de ajuda. Solicitam ajuda no âmbito do conhecimento mais que no âmbito financeiro - porém este continua sendo o principal. Adorei a experiência em Chikwawa e tem muito trabalho a ser feito porém com o coordenador Joshua vejo muito avanços em um curto espaço de tempo.
