In November 2001, Caitlyn Bradburn joined the Institute for International Cooperation and Development (IICD) to work in Mozambique, Africa for one year. IICD volunteers work in developing nations in Southern Africa, Central and South America. The volunteers institute and contribute to sustainable development projects in health, agriculture, and education. Before going abroad, each volunteer receives nearly 6 months of training in the history, culture, politics, and language of the country in which he or she will work. After spending anywhere from 3 to 12 months abroad, IICD volunteers return to the IICD campus in Massachusetts to create a conclusive project to educate others about their work abroad.
This website followed Caitlyn's preparations for her journey to Mozambique, and allowed her to share her experiences with those at home. Since then, it has grown into something much better than initially expected. It now chronicles Caitlyn's entire year in Mozambique, from May of 2002 to May of 2003, as well as the work of several other volunteers in Mozambique. Caitlyn returned to Lamego and to the vocational school on the ADPP Campus during the summer of 2005.
