Quotes

From S Howell, "I did a month-long trip with AllOut Africa in 2009 to Swaziland, with side trips to South Africa and Mozambique. Swaziland has an exceptionally high rate of AIDS, leading to many orphaned children. These children cannot afford schooling, so go to local volunteer-run schools. The program with AllOut Africa is run by Swazis for Swazis, and the benefits are fabulous for the kids and for the volunteer. Monday to Friday was spent at a free school, helping with maths and spelling, plus sport and dancing."
"We are always a role model, no matter if it's intentional or not" she said
"By working closely with our partners in both government and civil society, I am convinced that these projects will contribute significantly to the improvement of rural livelihoods and elimination of UXO threats benefiting many thousands of vulnerable people in Laos" added Mr Goffin
