Carolina Bebiano,

Volunteer in the project “Kula Na Wu Djonza (Crescer a Ler)”

“Kula Na Wu Djonza” (“Growing up Reading”) is a safe space where women share their concerns through stories. In this way, young mothers have access to books which in turn has a positive impact on their babies.

The mother returns more curious and attentive to the world around her. This work on the ground allowed me to discover this profound reality and get to know Mozambique through its people and discover motherhood in that country.”

Vítor Rosa,

Volunteer at the Office

I was without a significant occupation when I decided to sell the share I held in a small company where I used to spend my free days. One of my daughters told me about AIDGLOBAL, where she knew a person who deserved a lot of consideration. I set up a meeting and after an hour of pleasant conversation with a young woman, I had a great desire to collaborate with this NGO.

And with each passing day I become more convinced that I made the right decision. AIDGLOBAL proposes to contribute to the development of humanity through various initiatives that, in my view, will be guaranteed success. Not only the help they offer in Mozambique, but the actions taken with teachers are of enormous importance for improving the quality of life in the future.

By volunteering in AIDGLOBAL, the passage of time becomes more pleasant and gives me purpose. I can contribute to help execute tasks which would take much longer without my help and put my professional experience of 40 years at the service of this entity.
