Last week Hilario, our young Local Coordinator in Mozambique, joined the celebrations as the Portuguese Community held their annual gathering. Several other corporates and NGO’s operating in the country participated in the festivities. ALG showcased our local work and the charitable projects developed over 11 years in conjunction with our Portuguese sister-charity UPG Portugal.
More than a simple exhibit, this was an opportunity for our small charity to interact with diverse players in the country, sharing useful ideas and networking contacts. There were also more relaxed moments as the crowd danced to local live music and enjoyed Portuguese and Mozambican food. It was a very productive Saturday as we keep on establishing local bonds and increasing awareness of our Little Gestures in Mozambique!
