The way we operate in Mozambique
CouldYou? is committed to treating the local Mozambican community and individuals with absolute care and respect. The CY staff is familiar with the mistakes well-intentioned programs often make ruining local villages by imposing an outside agenda, moving too quickly, and not listening to the needs of the people.
Every aspect of the program is designed with the precautions in mind not to exploit or do damage on the ground—from the small size of the groups to the infrequency of the trips to the manner of local travel and participation. The goal is long-term sustainable progress, not overnight change.
