Floriana Nunes Saldanha lives in Timor-Leste’s capital, Dili. Her husband Luciano Sequeira was murdered in the violence that broke out after the vote for independence in 1999.
“Since Luciano was killed I have had to work very hard to support my children, to send them to school,” she says.

We need to increase the support we give to people with HIV and people at risk of infection.
We need to help Malawi’s people tackle environmental damage and help small-scale farmers build sustainable livelihoods.
Progressio’s development workers in Ecuador have:
“People in the cities – they make the decisions, but they don’t know what it is like here.
“They are in their offices, they cannot imagine this life – maybe if they visited, but they do not.
“Rural people eat, breathe and sleep agriculture. For this we need water. We have to protect mother earth, and care for her.”
