Training to be travelers, not tourists

KULIMA will explain how many things aren´t for granted

KULIMA WAS BORN AS A REFUGEE SUPPORT ORGANIZATION DURING THE CIVIL WAR AFTER THE INDEPENDENCE OF MOZAMBIQUE. “THE FIGHT AGAINST SOCIAL INJUSTICE, THE PROMOTION OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND PRACTICES OF GOOD GOVERNANCE THROUGH ACTIVITIES THAT MAKE THE TARGET GROUP THE MAIN ACTOR OF ITS OWN DEVELOPMENT, ARE THE VALUES THAT GUIDE AND HAVE ALWAYS CHARACTERIZED OUR ACTIONS”, EXPLAINS DOMENICO LIUZZI, NATIONAL DIRECTOR OF THE ORGANIZATION.

SOME OF THE PROGRAMS IMPLEMENTED BY KULIMA, AS THE PROMOTION OF PRODUCTIVITY IN AGRICULTURE AND MARKETING OF PRODUCTS, PROMOTION OF RURAL MICRO-FINANCE PROGRAMS, SUSTAINABLE USE OF WATER, PROMOTION OF ENVIRONMENTAL SANITATION AND HEALTH AND EDUCATION FOR ALL, ARE EXAMPLES OF THE AREAS WHERE THE NGO HAS BEEN HAVING A CONSIDERABLE IMPACT OVER THE 33 YEARS OF DEDICATION.

THE GREATEST NEEDS OF KULIMA ARE HAVING THE SUPPORT OF SPECIALISTS IN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT AND FUNDRAISING CAPACITY. THE ORGANIZATION IS ALWAYS OPENED TO RECEIVING NEW PEOPLE WHO HAVE INPUTS, INNOVATIVE IDEAS AND THE DESIRE TO LEARN ABOUT THE MOZAMBICAN REALITY. “WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR NEW RESOURCES IN TERMS OF LINKS AND PARTNERSHIPS TO GROW AND FIND NEW PATHS IN ORDER TO CONTINUE OUR MISSION ALONGSIDE WITH THE MOST VULNERABLE COMMUNITIES IN MOZAMBIQUE”, SAYS DOMENICO LIUZZI.

ACCORDING TO THE RESPONSIBLE, A TRUE VOLUNTEER “IS A CURIOUS, ENTERPRISING PERSON WHO IS NOT AFRAID OF OTHER REALITIES BUT INSTEAD HE WANT TO RELATE TO THEM, TO KNOW THE OTHER AND AT THE SAME TIME TO KNOW HIMSELF”. BESIDES THAT, DOMENICO LIUZZI THINKS THAT A VOLUNTEER BELIEVES IN THE VALUE OF GIVING ONE'S OWN TIME AND ENERGY, WITHOUT EXPECTING ANYTHING IN RETURN. “THERE IS ALWAYS A RETURN TO HIM IN TERMS OF THE BONDS HE CREATES, THE SMILES HE RECEIVES, AND THE GOOD MEMORIES HE WILL KEEP IN HIS HEART FOREVER”, HE STATES.

KULIMA JOINED WORLD LIFE EXPERIENCE BECAUSE THE ORGANIZATION BELIEVES THAT THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY THAT WILL ALLOW THE WINNERS TO LEAVE THEIR OWN COMFORT ZONE AND DISCOVER OTHER REALITIES, FACING THEIR OWN LIMITS AND DEVELOPING THEIR POTENTIALITIES. ALSO, AS DOMENICO LIUZZI EXPLAINS, “AN EXPERIENCE AT KULIMA CAN CONTRIBUTE TO GIVING VALUE TO THE EXPERIENCE. THROUGH PARTICIPATION IN SOME ACTIVITIES, TRAVELERS CAN HAVE DIRECT CONTACT WITH REALITIES THAT WILL GIVE THEM INPUTS TO REFLECT ON THE FACT THAT MANY THINGS THEY TAKE FOR GRANTED IN SOME PARTS OF THE WORLD ARE A PRIVILEGE LIMITED TO A FEW”. THE NATIONAL DIRECTOR OF KULIMA RECOMMEND THAT THE SELECTED CANDIDATES FOR THE WORLD LIFE EXPERIENCE ADVENTURE SHOULD BE PREVIOUSLY TRAINED TO BE TRAVELERS, NOT JUST TOURISTS. “THAT IS TO SAY, THAT THEY CAN REALLY ENJOY THE PLACE THEY ARE IN, WITHOUT FEAR OF INTERACTING WITH THE LOCALS, TALKING TO THEM, EXPERIMENTING, DISCOVERING AND RESPECTING THE PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH THEY ARE”.
