Ubuntu - I am because we are
Inspired by those who struggled and others who, every day, continue to struggle relentlessly, to have “enough to survive”. In a humble way, I came across this idea that my will is not enough to win, to move forward and go further alone, without the will, courage, dream and determination of other people who, like me , believe that together we can create effective alternatives to promote and provide better living conditions for others in poverty and social exclusion.
The Makobo Platform is a seed I planted in 2009, not as a charity project, but as a bridge between social extremes in Mozambique. A project of solidarity, of sharing ideas. An invitation to action, to sensitize people to act, to get involved in this project of a world of equal opportunities for all – The Collaborative Platform.
Joining efforts voluntarily and collaboratively, people who care about themselves and others and, above all, who want to propagate this seed of love, instilling and regenerating ideals and values, wanting to leave a different world for those to come. Leave a better world than we found it.
I want to thank all the people (individuals or institutions they represent) for the support they have given to this idea and their initiatives.
Special thanks to my family, my friends, partners, teachers, mentors, all the people who supported and continue to support all my crazy ideas from the beginning, and when necessary, pulled and pulled my ears when I was and I'm out of focus, out of sight and out of reason.
To ALL of you who make me a much better human being every day…No Words | All words. Thanks for believing me.
