It is of great value all the testemonial approach, but the essays should be more frequent and smaller, this would provide a deep vision of a projet paper/ case study.

Great to understand more about the grassroot project work, but would love to engage in a deep dive into the transformational community change process.

Let's keep on pedals!

Best regards from Lisboa
