Barbara is one of the most intelligent and resourceful directors of community-based development projects that I have come across in 15 years ... of living in and working on sub-Saharan Africa. Not only are her ideas solid, but she has an excellent (and well-deserved) reputation for listening to what others need, and then making positive things happen. She is incredibly well-respected throughout Mozambique for her contributions over the last couple of decades to this impoverished country. Additionally, those in the communities where she lives call her "Mom" because she has helped not only thousands of children, but also their families achieve skills, education, and better lives. I am delighted to endorse her, and am happy to answer any additional questions you may have about her.

L'aspetto che ritengo eccezionale è che lo sta facendo da oltre 25 anni, con piena dedizione e senza remore o ritegno: quei bambini sono tutta la sua vita, possiamo considerarli suoi figli e per molti orfani è la madre che non hanno conosciuto. Altro aspetto particolare è la capacità di organizzare una rete di associazioni in molti Paesi del mondo per finanziare le attività di ASEM e la comunicativa che colpisce tanti donatori di ogni estrazione e cultura, che continuano a sostenere le sue iniziative. é una grande donna che ha sacrificato se stessa per aiutare un popolo tanto lontano e povero.
