Personally I feel very proud and at the same time happy to be a part of the great group of volunteers from Progressio ICS.

This is a new chapter in my life, which will greatly help me to develop as a person and at the same time a good chance to share my new ideas that I will acquire during the process.  This programme is giving me the opportunity to understand the importance of sustaining a healthy environment in order to improve standards of living in the community.

In my first days of work as a volunteer, I have learnt how to use the different types of materials that are used in bio-construction work.

I have also learnt to relate and communicate with my colleagues from the UK despite the language barrier. I have also learnt a little about their culture and abilities and they have learnt a little about ours.
