Moe, 2011

Working with TAFCOM was a great opportunity for me to put my theoretical knowledge about development and related issues in perspective by being exposed to the reality. Being able to see the difficulties people in dire poverty face – for instance on home visits – with my own eyes was an invaluable experience.

Generally I worked on various different projects, the main one being researching and organising a fundraising project in my own country; I also enjoyed painting the TAFCOM centre and playing with the children.

Overall, it has been an enlightening experience to see the realities of NGOs and the challenges facing development workers and ‘developing countries’.
