"...As in most complex global issues, there are two strong points of view: those who strive to become part of the solution, and those who try their best to become part of the problem..."
Sandro Calvani, addressing a group of volunteers helping children of drug addict parents, Apr 2000
"Aid organizations should work to become useless or to be replaced by the people they helped. They should be like the scaffolding in a building construction: irreplaceable while the building is going on, and then useful elsewhere or expendable when the job is done."
