Development worker experiences
Interesting blogs, stories and experiences by our development workers.
Progressio development workers are experienced and professionally qualified specialists who offer skills, expertise and knowledge that is not available locally. The key role of our development workers is to transfer their skills and knowledge to our partner organisations. Together with the partner organisations, they work alongside local people, supporting them to find solutions to the problems they face.
