"We feel it has a significant influence on people's lives in Belize, because it promote actions with the communities, supporting them during the process, teaching and giving knowledge which can be used longer after we leave the project. This is a very different way to do aid where many other organizations just gives resources without implementing them properly, which do more harm than good...
....As a person the project also teach us many new skills and show us that we have more capacity than we ever could think of. Just the fact that you live together with people who are living in a difficult situation gives you a lot of perceptive on your own life...." Thomas (Denmark) & Keith (Colombia)
"The opportunity to be a Poverty Fighter is an once in a lifetime experience that allows you to use all your knowledge in practice, the opportunity to meet people, to share your culture as well as learn a lot about a new one, to learn new skills, to come across a new lifestyle, to discover a lot about yourself. You'll be able to reflect on your own values, and the most important aspect is to help people..." Martin (Slovakia)
"The biggest challenge for me were definitely the languages. Both, English and Spanish. Before I came to RVA I didn’t use English a lot. There was no need to do so. We had English in school and I was surrounded with it all the time on TV but I didn’t use it for communication. I was never satisfied with my level of it and I was never confident using it. That was one of the reasons why I chose a program that is not in my country (Slovenia) and I also knew that there won’t be anyone from my country so I will be forced to speak English, right or wrong....
....Latin America, more specifically Ecuador, was a period when a was confronted with number of challenges. When I arrived to the project my Spanish was still at the beginning and that put more pressure on me because we were there to teach people different things related to farming and agriculture, nutrition and English..."
