Q: What excites you most about Forgotten Voices?
A: The aspect of Forgotten Voices that excites me the most is its emphasis on “Local People Local Projects”. I feel strongly that effective aid and change can best be done when the recipient is receiving aid that is truly desired and needed. I feel that FVI’s method of working with Local People (potential recipients) so as to identify their needs, and establish a method of meeting those needs (Local Projects), is unique. It works to empower and enable the recipients to seek their own solutions to overwhelming problems while at the same time assuring them that FVI stands behind them to encourage, support and assist as needed.
